Known as the ‘Heart of Georgia’, the city of Macon is situated in Bibb County in central Georgia. It is made up of rolling hills in the north and flat plains in the south, and covers an area of 145.7 sq km. It has a population of around 100,000.
Macon has a humid, subtropical climate. The temperature in summer often reaches 35°C. In winter, the average temperature is around 5°C.
Originally the home to Creek Indians, the city was chartered as the county seat in 1823. The city’s trade grew due to its location on the Ocmulgee River. During the Civil War, the city served as a hospital for Confederate soldiers.
Known as the ‘Cherry Blossom Capital of the World’, the city is home to over 275,000 Yoshino cherry trees. The downtown area is lined with beautiful antebellum houses and a number of cathedrals and churches.

Overall Guide : I have lived here for 5 years and find it easy to get around, good doctors, good convenient shopping, convenient to airport in Atlanta, wonderful tree canopy and hills. In spring there are 300,000 cherry blossoms blooming with all the... more azaleas and blooming trees. A beautiful sight. We have a wonderful Grand Theatre with a variety of entertainment throughout the year and an excellent symphony. Two colleges Mercy and Wesleyan, both well known. I love living here.
Overall rating 6
Overall Guide : Macon is a business city, there is very little entertainment facilities such as museums. There are plenty places to shop, such as three Walmarts, two Krogers, a Sam's Club, and a huge mall. Crime rates are very high in Macon,... more though. Streets such as Monpellier Avenue, Pio Nono Avenue, and Gray Highway are considered very dangerous. There are plentiful hotels and motels, though, making Macon a great place to stay a night on your way somewhere else.
Not to be missed Hay House , Museum of Arts and Sciences , Library Ballroom
