Evacuated from the hurricane and stayed in Macon. The Visitors Information Center was like one stop shopping. They were able to give us points of interest, great restaurant choices, set us up with a tour of the city. Staff members were super.

Everyone was very knowledgable and gave interesting places to visit and we also ask what was free since we had to evacuate from Myrtle Beach, SC for Hurricane Florence. They also gave us good place to eat while staying in the area.
