We booked a night in Macon as a stopover from Savannah to Atlanta but wished we had booked several nights instead. On a super hot afternoon(108) we arrived and made our way straight to the visitors centre. It was excellent and we spent a cool 10 minutes watching a short film about the area and its people. The welcome staff we extremely helpful.
There were lots of places to visit and some super cafes plus good shopping on the outskirts of town.
The main attraction for us was the evening light event which shone on the glorious houses around the city.
I am going to write seperately about the individual places to visit but Macon is definitely worth a trip to stay and explore a while.
