Eat. Stay. Play.
Macon is a bustling city full of growth and renovation! We are proud to boast two of the most exciting entertainment venues in the state—the Macon Coliseum and the Macon City Auditorium. In addition to our events, there are plenty of dining opportunities, cozy places to stay, and attractions to visit.
Our city boasts over 200 palate-pleasing restaurants! From seafood to burgers, you can’t go wrong with any of Macon’s dining opportunities. We suggest the hole-in-the-wall restaurant The Rookery for burgers and milkshakes, Kudzu Seafood to satisfy your fishy fix, and Papouli’s Mediterranean Café for your Greek food cravings.
If you’re wanting homemade buffet-style food, visit The Bear’s Den near Mercer University. Are you in the mood for high-quality Mexican food? Look no further than El Camino next to the Cox Capital Theater. More restaurants are right around the corner!
There is a plethora of hotels to choose from in and around downtown Macon. We recommend the Marriott or the Hilton Garden Inn while you enjoy your stay in one of Georgia’s largest cities. When you’re not relaxing in your hotel room, be sure to visit our shopping venues for souvenirs and gifts alike.
