With music history, multiple museums, historic architecture, vibrant downtown, being a popular movie location, and exuding Southern charm, Macon is celebrating its Bicentennial this year. Located a little over an hour south of the Atlanta airport, it sits in the middle of the state at the intersection of I-75 and I-16.
