What Bert Has To Say About Macon Metro Area


Macon is a typical Mid-sized Southern city in both appearance and feel, with roots as a textile mill town. The downtown area has a large and well-used riverfront park, and the city has more entries on the National Register of Historic Places than any other city in Georgia. The area has a richer cultural and art presence than many others of its type. The Georgia Music Hall of Fame highlights state music achievements, and the city is well known for Southern-style music, food and restaurants. Three hospitals add a strong healthcare presence.
