Where do we go from here? Over the past few months, many businesses around Milledgeville were forced to temporarily close their doors due to the coronavirus. As businesses begin to reopen in Georgia, many locals and visitors are unsure about what they can and can’t do. Visit Milledgeville is here to provide updates on attraction reopenings and bring clarity to what you can and cannot do around Milly during this season of social distancing.
