See the highlights of the Milledgeville Historic District by taking a Historic Trolley Tour. Head to the Convention and Visitors Bureau and pay the fee to ride on a vintage red trolley. Listen to informative guided commentary as you take in the town’s sights.

Don’t miss one of the town’s most important landmarks, the Old Capitol Building. Built in the early 19th century the Old Capitol was among the first Gothic-style public buildings to be constructed in the U.S. This was the site where Georgians voted in favor of seceding from the Union and subsequently waged the American Civil War. Head to Georgia’s Old Capitol Museum on the building’s ground floor to learn about Georgia’s role in the Civil War and the lives of the Native Americans who lived in the region prior to European settlement.

Lots of restaurants and shopping. Anything you can think of, they have stores here. So if you were to travel here to stay and you may forget something, there's stores nearby that you can pick things up, from Walmart to Dollar Tree, to Kroger's

For a small town it feels like a big city. A lot of restaurants, shopping and food stores along the strip. There's no reason that you can't find what you need in this town.

The shopping was very convenient in accordance to the hotel, and the city seemed very nice, not too small, yet not too big.
