Macon, Georgia #15

During my April break this year My daughter & I went on a quest to find Honey Boo and it took us through Macon, GA. When we left our house on April 3rd we 1st stopped in Mcdonough then Irwinton and finally in McIntyre when Honey Boo Boo lives. We then doubled back and spent the evening in Macon.

Our first stop was at Ocmulgee National Monument
This was our first visit to an Indian mound, although Georgia is known for a few of them. They were really cool and big.You could go in this and walk to others that were not opened. National Parks are free to enter so what better way to pass the time, view nature and see something new & interesting.

2nd stop was to Fort Hawkins but unbeknownst to me it was closed.
It's open on the weekends & is also always free. It's coined as being the "birth place of Macon".

It was starting to rain so we decided to go check into our hotel and end our day at Carrabba's. We got up the next day and went to tour downtown Macon and visit the Visitor Information Center. This place even has a mini movie on Macon and what makes it so special.

Believe it or not, visiting a Bass Pro Shop has been something that I've wanted to do for a while so when I found out that Macon had one, I put it on the list. Other than the sporting goods purchases that you make it's absolutely free to go in, take pictures and enjoy the creativity of marketing. (remember picture to come).

I enjoyed Macon and want to go back to visit all of the many museums that it has to offer.

Fast Facts:
