Merry Christmas From Gateway Macon

All of our Gatekeepers would like to wish you and yours a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays. This has been a very busy time of year for our entire team at Gateway Macon.  Our goal was to become the premiere online outlet for all the best Central Georgia has to offer for the holiday season.  Based on our record setting visitor traffic, social media comments, and of course page one results for “things to do for the holidays in macon ga” in the latest Google search results we seem to be doing a pretty good job so far.

The Holidays In Middle Georgia

The holidays are upon us, and we've decked the halls to their finest, we're rushing about our errands, and hopefully being a little kinder to our fellow men and women.  While you're amidst the holiday rush, buy some extra canned goods for the less fortunate.  We like Loaves and Fishes, but there are plenty of worthy groups helping those in need.  It's not all iPhones and quad-copters and toys, but peace on Earth and a little charity of the heart.

In the meantime, to help get the Scrooges among you into the holiday spirit, check out this video of the Tripp Family Christmas display in the Cochran area. Learn more about it here>>
