Has some very pretty scenes. Berry College is a great place to take prom,homecoming, or just family pictures. It is very beautiful. Rome has 6 high schools, you can catch a football game on Friday night. After the football game it is a must that you go eat at Waffle House in Armuchee. And then on Saturday you can catch a football game at Berry or Shorter. It also has 2 bowling alleys and 2 movie theaters. Also Steak N Shake and Broad Street is where all the teens hang out!
