Macon is known for a few things… first of all, it’s where the House of Blues was born with the Allman Brothers calling Macon home. Macon is also home to one of the state’s only Level 1 Trauma hospital. Due to its central location, it makes Macon a prime location for emergency response. Macon features the Ocmulgee National Monument, which showcases the earthen mounds and lands as the indigenous people would have used them 3,000+ years ago.
Macon is also a manufacturing and distribution hub, again due to its central location in Georgia. I16 starts in Macon, and it runs all the way east to Savannah. I75, I16, and I475 all pass through various portions of the area, making it an easy place to navigate whether shopping, commuting, shipping, or just passing through.
Downtown Macon, while close to the House of Blues Museum and the hospital, is also an epicenter for artistic performance. Mercer University is located in the Downtown area, and Wesleyan College is only a few miles away as well. Many locals opt for the streets of Downtown Macon for photographing due to the charm and robust colors.
