Macon, Where Urbanity Coincides with Nature

Living in Macon is a great option for those looking for a larger city south of Atlanta that still retains a small-town feel. I can always find something to do such as attending regular street parties, touring historical homes and visiting the annual Cherry Blossom festival. There are not as many well-maintained city parks and swimming pools as would normally be expected, but there are a multitude of water-based activities on the Ocmulgee River and Lake Tobesofkee. Macon offers many economic opportunities for work. Companies such as the Medical Center of Central Georgia, YKK and Geico average between 500-6000 employees each, and new businesses locate to the area often, like the new fulfillment center from Amazon that was announced in October, 2017. Robins Air Force Base, located just 20 miles from Macon, employs 5,938 service members, 13,686 federal civilians, 1,843 contractors, 587 NAF employee and 176 AAFES employees. Mercer University and Middle Georgia State University are both large higher education institutions that are located in Macon, and both are excellent schools with a number of desirable programs and degrees. I attended Middle Georgia State College and enjoyed the classes and the attractive campus.
