Amerson River Park was featured in the article citing it’s 180 acres of forest and meadows. 

“We’ve got a really hip cool downtown we’re a visually stunning community because of our architecture because of our arts and culture so while it’s amazing, I think it’s really interesting… I’m not surprised,” said Vice President of Sales and Service for Visit Macon Steven Fulbright.

“Macon seems like a fabulous place to be. A place I’d like to spend more time lot of places to eat lunch outside beautiful old building, obviously great weather it just seems like a cool city,” said Stone.

Macon can attribute some of it’s Tik Tok fame to NewTown Macon. The organization has been uploading videos from its TikTok page showing off Macon’s local shops and events happening.
