Downtown Macon Neighborhood

I have a passion for storytelling and digital communications that I implement as the Web Media Manager at Visit Macon. Growing up only forty-five minutes away from Macon in a rural area near Dublin, my family has always made stops in Macon for shopping, events, to grab bite to eat. and to enjoy the beautiful downtown area. Now I'm excited to share all the reasons that others should also join in giving Macon an opportunity on their next trip. This city has interesting history and unique ties to musicians that have called Macon their home and it is reflected in the strong community that works to preserve and further improve the area.
