An average Winter day in Macon is about 60 degrees, but there are always a couple of weeks during the year when temperatures reach a chilly 30 degrees or lower. The cold weather shouldn't keep you coped up in your house. Try out these six indoor activities that will keep you warm and entertained.
Cox Capitol Theatre
Located in historic Downtown Macon, it's the perfect place to catch a live show by a big name or an up-and-coming artist. Be close to the music and stand in the pit area or get a seat in the balcony.
Museum of Arts and Sciences
If you've got the kids in tow, the Museum of Arts and Sciences has plenty of hands-on activities to keep them entertained while their learning. Dig for dinosaur bones in the Discovery House, explore the galaxy during a show in the Planeterium, and see over 80 live animals in the Mini-Zoo.
Let a good beer (or wine) warm you up on a cold day. Try a unique, local brew at Macon Beer Company while listening to live music or head to Just Tap'd for a beer on draft or wine on tap. In the mood for beer and a great meal? Wash down Piedmont Brewery & Kitchen's mouth-watering hot wings with a house-made beer or indulge in a delicious burger and beer at Ocmulgee Brewpub.
