Macon Apartments for Rent
With 5,500 historic sites and 11 historic districts, Macon isn’t just the heart of Georgia; it is the heart of the south. It is a classic Southern city from its beautiful cherry blossoms and magnolia trees to its legendary hospitality and traditions.
Although proud of its heritage, Macon is still a forward-moving city with amazing opportunities. It has a strong musical heritage, ranging from southern rock to rap to the Macon Symphony Orchestra. It is has produced musicians such as REM, Otis Redding, Little Richard, and the Allman Brothers Band. It is home to several universities, such as Mercer University, Fort Valley State University, Macon State College, Central Georgia Technical College, and Wesleyan College.
Macon’s festivals are legendary and include the Georgia State Fair, one of the longest-running fairs in the country, dating back to 1851. The fair includes amusement rides, entertainment, and agricultural exhibits. Another long-running festival is the International Cherry Blossom Festival. Taking advantage of the city in full glorious bloom, the festival lasts 10 days and includes crafts, hot air balloons, events, concerts, exhibits, and (of course) the 300,000 Yoshino cherry trees.
When you choose your Macon apartment, you’ll appreciate this charming southern city’s wide variety of restaurants, shops, museums, theaters, and nightlife. Catch a performance at the historic Grand Opera House, built in 1884, or stroll along the streets of downtown Macon and enjoy shopping and dining.
