  • Clock Tower Located at the center of the Atlanta- Birmingham- Chattanooga Triangle, lies one of America's best cities - Rome, Georgia!

    Known as the "Capital of Northwest Georgia," we invite you to discover for yourself why Rome was recently named the #1 Most Livable City in the Southeast and the #1 Small City with the Best Health Care in the United States.

    Floyd County, one of the 50 wealthiest non-metro cities in the United States, is the economic hub and medical center of all of Northwest Georgia. Its renowned healthcare facilities are home to more physicians per capita than any city in Georgia.
     
    More than 150 diverse manufacturers and some of America's fastest growing high-tech and diverse industries provide Rome and Floyd County with a wide range of job opportunities.

     Ranked 15th in economic strength among all of Georgia's counties, Floyd County enjoys a billion dollar retail sales economy and is recognized as the commercial center of Northwest Georgia. Undoubtedly, Rome will remain Northwest Georgia's economic leader well into the 21st century.

    Excellent educational institutions are found throughout Floyd County. Three colleges (one among the top ten in America), a vocational-technical institute, award-winning public schools, and perhaps the finest and most beautiful public library in our state, meet the high standards of a diverse community.

    Quality recreational and cultural opportunities abound. Rome is the 9th ranked tennis city in the United States and our highly acclaimed public golf course and other recreational amenities, including walking and biking trails, address all the needs of the sports enthusiast. The South's oldest symphony, college and local theatres, arts festivals, and several museums add to the rich quality of life that provides families with unique experiences in which they may share and further enrich their lives.

    You will come to appreciate Rome's exceptional lifestyle when you stroll the downtown historic "between the rivers" district, visit the world's largest campus at Berry College, learn of Rome's Cherokee heritage at Chieftains Museum, or explore the three rivers that are surrounded by the beautiful hills of Floyd County.

    Rome is a perfect place for close family ties, long-lasting friendships, and a lifestyle about which many only dream. For more information about Rome and Floyd County, stop by the Greater Rome Chamber of Commerce or call 706/291-7663.
