With some terrific road trip options available in the surrounding area, renting a car makes good sense. Without one, it’d be much harder to explore all that Macon, 25 miles away, has to offer. Among the first stops you make here should be The Allman Brothers Band Museum at the Big House, Macon Mall and Grand Opera House. Situated 35 miles away, Dublin is another popular choice. If you swing by, don’t miss Dublin Mall, Theatre Dublin and Dublin Country Club.
