Macon-Bibb County is where people from all middle Georgia, and the world, come to work; receive state-of-the-art medical services; attend Medical, Engineering, and Law schools; receive award winning Information Technologies training; and enjoy a wide variety of retail, restaurants, and entertainment offerings. 

The average commute from the Labor Draw Area is 19 minutes and after work you can be in the mountains or at the beach in less than 3 hours.
