When in Rome, Do as the Romans Do

That means taking full advantage of a municipality recognized as one of the top 10 small cities in the Southeast.

Whether you were born and bred in Floyd County or hail from across the country, you’ll find a warm welcome in Rome.  A beautiful town located in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Rome has three rivers running through it: the Etowah, the Oostananaula and the Coosa.

The intellectual and cultural life of the city is enhanced by the four colleges that call it home – Berry College, Shorter College, Georgia Highlands College and Georgia Northwestern Technical College.  Take a class, attend a concert or stroll through these beautiful campuses as they change with the seasons.  The city is small enough to go (almost) anywhere in 10 minutes, yet large enough to boast Georgia’s oldest symphony, the Historic Desoto Theatre, and nationally recognized festivals, fairs, and sporting events.

Rome is equally well known for its outstanding health care and some of the state’s finest hospitals and doctors, including Redmond Regional Medical Center, Floyd Medical Center and Harbin Clinic.

Rome’s northern sector is bustling with shopping, recreation and historic homes.  A number of thriving businesses and long-time industries keep the city prosperous.  South Rome is convenient to downtown and features beautifully restored historic homes. The downtown or “Between the Rivers” district is a delight with restored Victorian-era streets and shops.  East Rome offers a suburban lifestyle while West Rome boats a multitude of parks and recreation.
