All About Downtown Americus
Visit Americus, where the past and present stroll side by side...
The towers and turrets of our downtown hotel are an architectural marvel and the centerpiece of our city. We rescued this treasure and restored it as a place for people to visit, to gather, and to make memories. Today, it stands sentinel to the continued vision of a City that aspires to be a centerpiece of commerce and innovation through respect for our past.
Our downtown is a place where each building tells a story. The architecture here is unmatched in many cities our size. But buildings alone are not what make downtown Americus unique. It is what happens inside that makes this such a vibrant place. Here, independent entrepreneurs give unrivaled service in shops, businesses, and eateries that serve residents, students, and visitors that come here from all over the world.
Our downtown is a place where our community comes together. Young and old, lifelong residents and newcomers, and people from all walks of life mingle together at events that happen throughout the year.
We look to the future with optimism recognizing that our rich history is prologue to a story of continued success. We have joined together to invest in this place that has given us so many memories and defines the character of our city. We are repurposing buildings, enlivening streets, and fostering connections. Whether you are visiting for the first time or rediscovering this place, we welcome you to be a part of the future of Downtown Americus.
