  1. I just saw this in my twitter feed and had to come have a look. What a great post to showcase Macon and the Cherry Blossom Festival! Macon doesn’t always get its due regards when talking about the charm of some old Georgia cities.

  2. We have just had to make some travel plan changes and are now spending two nights in Macon early next week. I know we will miss most of the festivities but your notes will come in handy as we look for places to eat while seeing the sights. Bloggers are the best for useful info!! Thank you.

    1. Thanks for stopping by Jane! Glad I was able to be helpful for your visit to Macon. Enjoy your stay. Please be sure to come back and tell me about your visit 🙂

    1. You guys are still snowed in up north, I know. Sooner or later, you will get some real spring weather. The cherry trees are actually pink but it is so pale, it looks white. They are not all in bloom right now but will be in a matter of days as long as their isn’t a cold snap. The blooms don’t last long but they are beautiful when they are out.

    1. I know you are waaaay over on the west coast, Renee so that is a long journey. The old historic south is a beautiful place, much more slow paced and wonderful living.

We enjoying hearing from you!
