Looking for something special to plan for your mom this Mother's Day? Why not spend it in Macon? She will definitely thank you for it!

Here are some tips to create the perfect Mother's Day for your mom:

Take your mom out to have some fun in the sun at one of our beautiful parks at Lake Tobesofkee. Sandy Beach at Lake Tobo is open on Sunday from 9am-7pm. It has covered picnic pavilions, a softball field, and a lighted tennis court.

How about taking your mother to some award-winning non-chain restaurants that are just finger-lickin' good?
Make a stop down to downtown Macon at one of our famous restaurants: The Rookery. Famous for its hamburgers, you and your mother can just sit and enjoy the live music on the outside patio.

Want to take your mother out to enjoy an evening on a night of the town?
