Macon, GA

We started our stay in Macon by taking yet another historic homes tour (am I seeing a trend developing here?) where we visited several nicely restored antebellum homes including the Sidney Lanier Cottage, the Cannonball House and the Hay House. Of course, all the homes were decorated for the Christmas holidays.

In the afternoon, we went into downtown Macon and visited the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. There we saw everything from vintage instruments, clothes and equipment once played and used by entertainers like Elvis Presley, Ray Charles, Chet Atkins and many others from all type of music. Even old-time music was featured with tributes to folks like Gid Tanner and the Skillet-Lickers.
