Rome is Home: What Makes us Thankful

Posted November 21, 2017 by Georgia's Rome Staff Writers in Life in Rome

As the passage of time seems to go by quicker and quicker, we are astounded by the fact that Thanksgiving is less than a week away. In honor of the holiday, we are sharing some photographs of Rome to help explain why we are thankful for our city. As you travel to Rome to visit family or leave the city for the holiday, here’s some reasons why there’s no place like Rome.

Between the trails at Berry College, Jackson Hill, Marshall Forest, and the Pocket, the outdoor adventure possibilities in Rome are endless. It is always a good idea to take the family to see the Old Mill at Berry College or to the House of Dreams. Both offer incredible views of the outdoors here in Rome,; not to mention excellent experiences for hiking and biking for all ages!


We are thankful to be in an area where our wonderful city can look beautiful every day of the year! With so many colors among the trees, but also breathtaking views from various landmarks whether you’re watching the sunrise or sunset, you’ll never forget your time in Rome.

We are thankful to have such amazing local businesses and restaurants that make our downtown vibrant and allow for an exciting experience for all!

We’re also thankful for some of our greatest hits. Some of our greatest and most recognizable landmarks and fun facts that are part of why we are so great! We also love that Rome is steeped in rich history where you can learn something new every day.
