Dining in Macon

Macon has various places to choose from in local dining especially in the downtown area. The local cuisine in the downtown area comes in many flavors like Southern Home Cooking, Italian, European, Chinese, Hispanic and African. With so many places and cuisines to choose from its only fitting for Macon to gather downtown restaurants together for restaurant goers to sample various cuisines, which is know by locals as the Taste of Downtown.

Every year in September, hundreds of citizens come out to the Taste of Downtown to try over 60 dishes from downtown restaurants. Coffeehouses in the downtown area have also brought a new flavor to those looking to try various blends of coffee and pastries. Coffeehouses are also home to late night visitors looking for night entertainment and friend gatherings.

City Parks

The Macon-Bibb County Parks has long been a source of joy and quality of life for the citizens of Macon and Bibb County - for well over 100 years.

Many families enjoy the old fashioned baseball and football games each year evoking memories of earlier days. Macon and Bibb County residents have opportunities to explore thousands of acres of parks and open space, enjoy the beauty of nature trails, or immerse themselves in one of our creative arts courses at one of our well maintained facilities.

For those that like to savor the good things in life without feeling rushed, then Macon is the perfect getaway spot for relaxation and leisure activities.

The Arts

The Arts of the Macon community are comprised of Drama, Music, Dance, and Visual Arts.
