Rome, Georgia Travel Guide

Complete Vacation, Recreation and Tourism Information

Rome, Georgia was founded in 1834 and incorporated in 1847. Surrounded by the Etowah, Oostanaula and Coosa Rivers, Rome quickly developed a large river trade, and eventually become the hub of commerce activity for the region. During the Civil War, Sherman's troops burned most of the city.

Today, Rome serves as the county seat of Floyd County, and proudly displays a bustling downtown full of fine antique shops, and unique specialty stores. The abundance of rich Victorian architecture and a stately clock tower only add to the city's appeal. Rome is often described as place that has melded the charm of a small town charm with the opportunities of a big city.

Visitors should not miss the opportunity to learn more about one of the most impressive women in Georgia's history, Martha Berry. The Martha Berry Museum offers insight into Martha's generous spirit and devotion to education, which continues through prominent Berry College today.

For those looking for recreational activity, Rome's three rivers offer an abundance of kayaking, fishing, and boating opportunities. Rome takes great pride in maintaining several walking and running paths too. Nearby Chattahoochee National Forest offers hikers great surprises. Caves, canyons, and waterfalls are just some of the treats this national forest shares. For those who love camping, Mayo's Lock and Dam Park, and Rocky Mountain Recreation Area are excellent sites.

Rome is located in the northwest corner of Georgia, about 50 miles directly south of Chattanooga, TN and 55 miles northwest of Atlanta, off US Hwy 411.
