The Finalists for Rand McNally’s Best of the Road contest were announced Thursday, and Macon finished in the Top Five for Friendliest City in America. Macon made it to the top five because of votes cast online after a social media push from the City and many local organizations and individuals.
“Once again, our community used social media to let the country know what a great place Macon is to live, work, and play,” says Macon Mayor Robert Reichert. “First, they showed support for improving the Second Street Corridor by winning the Paint What Matters contest and have now let the country know what great people live here. This speaks volumes for the type of community we are in Macon: friendly, active, and supportive.”
