It’s more than a place on a map. It’s a vibe all its own. We invite you to come experience Macon, Georgia!

Macon’s brand, “Where Soul Lives” speaks not only to our rich history, but also of who we are today. Macon is a vibrant, growing city, teaming with hospitality and history, with tons to offer visitors and residents alike.

Macon’s musical roots include legendary musical artists such as Otis Redding, Little Richard, The Allman Brothers Band and new artists such as Jason Aldean. Experience our musical heritage while sitting on the dock of the Ocmulgee River with Otis Redding’s life-size bronze statue at Gateway Park or visit the once home turned museum of the Allman Brothers Band, the Big House.


As exciting as Macon is during the day, at night the city has a whole new energy that’s perfect for folks who want to get out and party. Dance to the beats like a Southern rock star at the lounge that launched a new genre of music in the 1970s, or check out the newest acts coming out of the Macon music scene. Whatever your plans are, Macon’s nightlife is sure to offer something for every mood. Macon is a town where a night out can mean fine dining, drinks, or dancing, but also a moonlit walk among architectural masterpieces or a live show at one of our historic theatres. Also, don’t forget to take home one of a kind treasures from Macon’s unique downtown boutiques or antique markets.
