The United States of America is a country in North America that extends from the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific Ocean and shares land borders with Canada and Mexico. The United States is a federal constitutional republic, with its capital in Washington, D.C., District of Columbia.
Macon is a city located in central Georgia. It is among the top five largest metropolitan areas in Georgia, and the county seat of Bibb County, It lies near the geographic center of Georgia, approximately 80 miles south of Atlanta, hence the city's nickname as the Heart of Georgia. As of the 2000 census, Macon had a population of 97,255, as of 2005, the Macon-Warner Robins-Fort Valley combined statistical area had an estimated metropolitan population of 379,669. Robins Air Force Base, a major employer, is south of the city. The area is also home to several institutions of higher education, as well as numerous museums and tourism sites.
Macon is one of Georgia's three Fall Line Cities, along with Augusta and Columbus. Because the Fall Line is where the hilly lands of the Piedmont plateau meet the flat terrain of the coastal plain, Macon has a varied landscape of rolling hills on the north side and flat plains on the south.
In the city the population was spread out with 26.9 percent under the age of 18, 11.3 percent from 18 to 24, 27.5 percent from 25 to 44, 20.0 percent from 45 to 64, and 14.3 percent who were 65 years of age or older. The median age was 34 years. For every 100 females there were 79.7 males. For every 100 females age 18 and over, there were 72.8 males.
Macon natives have had a great influence upon music of the United States. The kazoo was invented in the city during the 1840s. Macon has been the birthplace or hometown to such musicians as The Allman Brothers Band, Mark Heard, Lucille Hegamin, Lena Horne, Otis Redding, and Little Richard, as well as more recent names like violinist Robert  McDuffie, rapper Young Jeezy, and country artist Jason Aldean. Partly as a result of this musical heritage, Macon is also the home of the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. This is where musicians from around the state are enshrined for their contributions.

Macon is the kind of city you daydream about. It is a city with endless recreational opportunities, rich history, and modern day luxuries.
