Macon is located in the center of the state and I-75 and I-16 intersect here to make access to the north, the south and the Georgia coast convenient. The national’s busiest airport in Atlanta is just one hour away. Thanks to our great location, Macon is the first AARP designated Age-Friendly community in the State of Georgia. With more Yoshino cherry trees than anywhere else in the world, including the nation’s capital, Macon’s annual Cherry Blossom Festival attracts visitors from all over the world.
For outdoor recreation, Macon has an abundance of public and private golf courses, two tennis centers and the 1800 acre Lake Tobesofkee with 35 miles of shoreline and three parks.
