Each New Year presents an opportunity to start afresh. We can continue cultivating good habits, branch out and try new things, or maybe just put a valiant effort into what's left of last year's best intentions. New Year's resolutions present not only an exciting opportunity to better ourselves, but also to explore, discover, and fall in love with our surroundings. Macon, Georgia is full of ways to make your resolutions a reality.

If becoming healthier is your goal, Macon has plenty of resources at your disposal. Restaurants such as Fountain of Juice and Back to Edenz, both located off of Forsyth Rd., have menu options that can help you with your fitness goals. Try a smoothie from Fountain of Juice or one of the many vegan dishes at Back to Edenz. Your resolution can also be met by exercising at one of Macon's trails. Consider exploring Ocmulgee National Monument and taking in the rich heritage of the Native American site. Amerson Water Works Park offers gorgeous views and water activities once the weather permits.

Maybe your New Year's Resolution is to be more adventurous. Begin by discovering the beauty that exists right here in Macon. Hear about the city's rich musical heritage at venues such as The Big House or the Douglass Theatre. Be dazzled by a performance at the Grand Opera House or Cox Capital Theater. See the city in a new light as you walk through the heart of downtown with a Rock Candy Tour. Take in the night life with an evening spent dancing at the Crazy Bull or trying a signature cocktail at Tic Toc Room.
