Rome is beautiful. It lies at the foothills of the Appalachian mountains, with three rivers winding through the city and a clean, walkable downtown with well-kept historic buildings. Rome has a strong arts community and a passion for history. It's the home of Stately Oak Hill & Martha Berry Museum, as well as Berry College, Shorter College and The Darlington School. The Class-A Rome Braves play here, there is excellent shopping and dining, and did we mention that it's beautiful?
