Born and raised right here in Macon, Georgia, my love for this city continues to grow every day. The rich history that lies here in the heart of Georgia is something that needs to be shared with the world. As the Web Media Manager at Visit Macon, I hope to encourage others to come and experience the soul of this special place.

On Sun., April 22 from 2 - 6 p.m, experience 1.8 miles of car-free streets in Downtown Macon. People traffic will replace car traffic, as sections of streets close to cars and open to you! Organized by Bike Walk Macon, Open Streets is a car-free celebration of public space; bringing people together to walk, skate, bike, and play in the streets.

Once a year, Macon's landscape turns pink as 300,000 Yoshino cherry trees blossom around the city. To celebrate these gorgeous trees, Macon holds the International Cherry Blossom Festival . Happening March 16 - 25, here are the top events for this year's festival.
