Rome, Georgia

Travel along The Gourmet Highway with our good pal Doc Lawrence as he visits Rome, the gentle border city west of Atlanta.

Rome, whose name is a commemoration of the Italian city of Rome, was built on seven hills with a river running between them, a feature that was an inspiration for the name.

A lovely and friendly town where the arts flourish and restaurants thrive, it's the home of the Rome Braves, part of the Atlanta Braves system.

Rome has a strong arts community, a passion for history and a respect for the three gentle rivers winding through the heart of the city.

A great getaway for the entire family. And it’s very pet friendly!
