Macon Base Package

“An old man strolls leisurely down a shady boulevard, softly whistling a hauntingly familiar tune. Sparkling streams of water cascade over time worn edges of an antique fountain and flow rhythmically in time. Choirs of crickets gather along the river to join the old man’s mystic melody in a charming, off-key cadence. A gentle breeze blows wistfully through this serene serenade. The tune…unrecognizable.The feeling…unmistakable. Walk with us through Macon. Hear the unforgettable song of the South. It will touch your very soul.”

Situated on the fast moving Ocmulgee River, Macon in Bibb County has been a home place for more than ten thousand years. Since its founding in 1823, Macon has emerged as the gateway and the largest city in the State’s heartland. Macon is not a metropolis, it is a gentle place of church steeples, twilight tours, flower planted medians, and acres of trees; pine, oak magnolia, dogwood and the 265,000 Yoshino Cherry Trees that veil Macon in the palest pink during the annual Cherry Blossom Festival.

Macon’s architectural wealth is a mix of Antebellum, Victorian and early-twentieth-century mansions and modest cottages within a relatively small area. More than two thousand acres of Macon’s downtown neighborhoods are listed in the National Historic Register. If architecture is Macon’s skin, music is its soul; a visit to the Georgia Music Hall of Fame will bear that fact out. From Lena Horne to Little Richard, the Allman Brothers to Alan Jackson, come, see and hear the stories of the Georgians who have made their mark on the Music World. Come to Macon with us, experience for yourself, the song and you will see why it stays in your soul long after you are gone.
