What Bert Has To Say About Rome Metro Area


Rome, a typical Mid-sized Southern town, is located near an attractive area of mountains, rivers, and lakes in northwest Georgia. A city of seven hills like its Italian namesake, Rome has roots in agriculture, textile and carpet milling. There are some typical homes and landmarks of the 19th century South, and Rome did win a National Trust for Historic Preservation Great American Main Street award for revamping its historic core. Most entertainment and leisure activity is connected to water and mountain areas nearby, although there are minor league sports and a few other amenities in town.
