Allied Van Lines: The Best of Macon Moving Companies
Head southeast on Interstate 75 from Atlanta for a little more than 80 miles and you will run into the charming Southern community of Macon. The city has always been a dominant hub in a largely agricultural region of Georgia, but there are other industries that keep the city vibrant, such as a burgeoning tourism sector and a focus in health care as well as financial and insurance employment.
The average yearly temperature in Macon is around 64 degrees Fahrenheit with mild winters and hot, humid summers. There are 10 historic districts in town, each with their own distinct personality. According to a 2012 U.S. Census estimate, there are more than 91,000 residents living in Macon. The cost of living is very agreeable in Macon with an index 10 percent less expensive than the national average, according to City-Data.
Activities and Attractions in Macon
Macon is home to one of the most important pieces of land, the Ocmulgee National Monument, which dates back to the Paleo-Indian period when Native Americans wandered into present-day Macon to hunt during the Ice Age. Even 17,000 years later, the settlements here are still available for public viewing and part of the National Park Service.
The International Cherry Blossom Festival in Macon is perhaps the biggest community event in the city. Every spring in late March, Macon comes alive with pink blossoms, as the city is home to more than 300,000 Yoshino cherry trees. There are many excellent events associated with the festival that are held throughout Macon including a 5K, art contests, gardening competitions, plenty of food and drink, amusement park rides, a petting zoo and live musical performances. If you want to get to know your new neighbors, this is a great time and place to do so.
Moving to Macon
Macon's location has always been one of its best selling points. There are several thoroughfares in the area that make a relocation easy for a Macon moving company, including Interstates 475, 75 and 16 as well as U.S. Highways 80, 41, 23 and 129. Needless to say, finding your way around town shouldn't be too difficult. However, since the weather here can be quite hot and humid during most of the year, you may want to check out some of the services offered by Allied Van Lines. A qualified agent can set you up with amenities like high-value shipping and box and furniture inventory as well as unpacking and clean-up services.
