    What do you like about Macon? I love the Southern charm in the old houses, parks, restaurants, and churches. Many of the city's residents are proud and devoted to improving the lifestyle and image of the city, and I have seen the fruits of their endeavors in only the short four years I have lived there.
    What do you dislike about Macon? Though parts of the city are in a state of change and hopefulness for the future, other parts seem pretty hopeless. The poverty and crime in much of South Macon is very self-perpetuating, and some of the public schools are among the worst in the nation.
    What are your favorite parts of the city to live and/or hang out in? Mercer's campus is always fun, as well as downtown and Vineville Ave. Also, if you are only going to be in town for a short while, be sure not to miss the Allman Brothers museum at the Big House.
    How expensive is it? As far as gas and groceries, it is probably the cheapest place I have ever lived.
    Is it safe? That depends heavily on where you are. Mercer's campus and North Macon, almost always. But on MU Drive, Eisenhower, and other parts of South Macon, tread with caution.
    How is the weather? Mild, except I suppose summers can be hot if you didn't grow up in the South, accustomed to 95-100 degree days.
    Additional thoughts? Macon is a great place to live if you are open-minded and willing to contribute to the revitalizing of a beautiful, historic city.
