US Nursing: Macon
Nurses will find that the city’s rich history generated a varied housing market in Macon and one of the most diverse in the US. Macon residents enjoy living downtown in historic homes and loft apartments; in established subdivisions as well as new communities with tree lined streets and sidewalks. Macon residents can also choose the peace and quiet of suburban living with spacious homes and acreage and lakefront property.
Macon has over 35 parks for the community to enjoy as well as being home to numerous festivals, concerts and sporting events. There are sports aplenty, together with fishing, hunting, canoeing, hiking and bicycling – all available in the riversides and nearby open country.
Separately nurses will discover a wide variety of cultural and entertainment opportunities. For example the city is the home to over 10 museums, 5 tours, 7 annual festivals, and a multitude of events including the Macon Cherry Blossom Festival, Ocmulgee Indian Festival, Tubman Pan African Festival, Mid-Summer Macon, Arrowhead Indian Festival, Georgia State Fair, and many others.
There is the overarching influence of Capricorn Records which influenced many musicians to reside in Macon. A long list of artists includes Otis Redding, the Allman Brothers Band, Robert McDuffie and Jason Aldean. Macon’s Museum District hosts Georgia’s largest African American Museum, and the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame.
With regard to the performing arts the city has two theater groups, the Macon Little Theatre and Theatre Macon. The Macon Ballet and touring groups perform here regularly, with the Nutcracker of Middle Georgia each holiday season.
