You're engaged, congratulations! Wedding bells will be chiming before you know it, but before your big day arrives, you have to celebrate big with your girls. From cozy bed & breakfasts, outdoor adventure, breweries, & of course nightlife, here's 4 reasons Macon is the perfect place to host your bachelorette party.

1.) The coziest bed & breakfasts

Macon is home to two historic homes that double as quaint bed & breakfasts just minutes from the downtown area. 1842 Inn is as grand on the inside as it is on the outside. Sip mimosas on the gorgeous front porch, stay in one of their 19 guest rooms, enjoy coffee in the courtyard, & take a short walk downtown. Known for lavish public rooms and distinctive suites, Burke Mansion offers guests a hearty breakfast, wine & hors d' oeuvres in the evening, & more. They also have a separate carriage house with three bedrooms, two bath, dining room, & kitchen that's great for larger parties.


2.) Explore the outdoors

Kick back & relax with a float down the Ocmulgee River. See the beauty and a view of Macon you can't see any other way than from the river as it winds through town. Ocmulgee Outdoor Expedition is a locally-owned rental service that will take you on a Quick Float at Amerson River Park. Float past woods and the historic Riverside and Rose Hill cemeteries. Feeling a little adventurous? Take the Half Day Adventure and experience the thrill of Class 1 rapids.


Beautiful day on the water! #savinglives #poppingtops

3.) Breweries & beer gardens, galore

No bachelorette party is complete without beer & wine! Macon is home to several breweries and beer gardens. Enjoy the bright & airy atmosphere of Ocmulgee Brewpub. Try one of their mouth-watering burgers & wash it down with a house-made beer. Who says you're too old for arcade games? Head to Piedmont Brewery & Kitchen for delicious Southern-style food & house-made beer. While you're there check the arcade downstairs. If you're interested in taking a brewery tour, Macon Beer Company is the place to go. Specializing in fine craft beers brewed in house, it has a large brewing area where you can learn how the beer is made from start to finish. Soak up the sun at The Society Garden, Macon's newest beer garden & wine bar. Located in Historic Ingleside Village, listen to live music, play some outdoor games, & enjoy good company in a beautiful setting.

4.) Nightlife, of course

After you eat at one of Macon's local restaurants, it's time to hit the town with your ladies. Catch a show at the historic Hargray Captiol Theatre. From smaller acts on the verge of stardom to headlining acts, it's a great place to kick off your night. Next, check out one of our local bars.
