Few cities can compare to the natural beauty and charm of Georgia's Rome. Tucked in the foothills of the ancient Appalachian mountains, Rome is a city that has reverently preserved its past while embracing its future.
Throughout the decades, this classic city has grown in sophistication to become a unique portrait of Southern heritage and hospitality. Rome has a strong arts community, a passion for history and a respect for the three gentle rivers - the Etowah, Oostanaula and Coosa - winding through the heart of the city. Visitors and locals alike enjoy the rivers for their scenery, canoeing, kayaking, boating and fishing.
While you're in town, don't miss the chance to see picturesque Berry College, founded in 1902 and boasting historic buildings and homes, miles of trails, and the world's largest wooden overshot waterwheel. Spend a day shopping and dining downtown, and during baseball season, catch the Rome Braves, Class A affiliate of the Atlanta Braves, in action.
Whether you are visiting to shop for antiques or to hike our rich mountain trails, you will never forget "where the rivers meet and the mountains begin!"
