Rome features a number of parks available for you to explore, hike, or simply enjoy with family and friends when you need a break from the demands of work and life. Alto Park provides 68 acres of land equipped with softball, volleyball, and tennis courts with year-round access. Trails are also available for hiking and you will find a host of batting cages where you can hone your baseball skills. Armuchee Park is 31 acres in size and offers access to a scenic creek where locals go to relax and fish on a lazy day.
Enjoy the Night Life
It may not be a metropolis, but you will still find an active nightlife in Rome. Several of the most popular bars in the area include the Old Havana Cigar Company, a lounge on Broad Street where you can enjoy a classic cigar as well as a few drinks. You should also pay a visit the Historic DeSoto Theatre. While movies are no longer on order, the local theatre group puts on a number of plays each year. To experience something a little bit different, stop in at the Moon Roof bar situated right on a building's roof and offering music, drinks, and performances.
Rome Wine Festival
Rome's Wine Festival is another event that you will not want to miss. While the name may suggest that this event is focused on wine only, nothing could be further from the truth. The Wine Festival benefits the Rome Symphony, and features wine tastings, dining experiences, musical performances, a picnic concert, and many other fun workshops and performances. The local high school drama students get involved in the festival each year, giving several performances themselves and helping out behind the scenes. For those who become supporters of the Symphony directly, a Patron's Party is held as a personal thank you at the start of the Festival.
