The town we live in is Rome, Georgia. Rome has a population of around 50,000 people and is home to 3 universities. There are 3 large rivers in Rome so it is ideal for canoing and kayaking. There are a multitude of places for mountain biking and hiking. Restaurants and shopping are plentiful and it is a very easy town to navigate. There are several good public golf courses within 20 minutes of the house. The mall, semi-professional baseball and movie theaters are only 10 minutes away. Rome also has several regional museums and a wonderful downtown area with galleries, antique stores and restaurants. We love our town. It is big enough to have great amenities but still be very friendly. You will love the "Southern Hospitality"! Go to www.romegeorgia.com and www.berry.edu for more information about the area.
Our neighborhood is quiet, safe and secluded with all houses being on lots from 2 to 5 acres. It is a very nice place to walk but is quite hilly for biking. It is just minutes by car from central commercial district with restaurants, shopping, etc. There are tennis courts, a public swimming pool, golf driving range and skateboard park within 3 miles of our house. Unfortunately, public transportation is not very good in the area so you will have to drive to most places. However driving in our town is easy.
It is about an hour by car to Atlanta, site of the 1996 Olympics. Atlanta has many large museums including the World of Coca-Cola, High Museum of Art, etc. There is a fantastic aquarium there and a good zoo. There are a lot of cultural events ranging from theater to the symphony. We can send you much information about what to do in Atlanta.
