Meet Milledgeville, the first Lady of Georgia

Bathed in an intoxicating mixture of magnolia and moonlight, her classic beauty is unsurpassed.

Find an adventure in Milledgeville. If you want to get down, then get downtown! Locally-sourced restaurants, original live music and organic coffee shops are steps away from fascinating museums, impressive art galleries, trendy fashion boutiques and funky antique stores.

Turn off your GPS! Hop on board an authentic trolley and tour historic mansions and museums without a map. Then, relive your glory days with a trip down memory lane through the vibrant Georgia College campus, bustling with electric energy and located right in the heart of downtown Milly. 

Just like every true southern belle, Milly is full of surprises. If you just want to chill, kayak or canoe on the meandering Oconee River and practice yoga in a pristine park. Hike leisurely along the famous Bartram Trail or book a boat on Lake Sinclair.

Make a date with Milly, downtown after dark. Order a round of craft beers and wood-fired pizza at The Brick and try signature margaritas at Gringo’s local taqueria. Enjoy haute cuisine and sip champagne in a plush wine cellar at Aubri Lane’s. Mix and mingle with martinis and an amusing mix of characters, like professors and professional anglers....or history buffs and history majors. Milly is waiting for your call.
