Upstate New York is a beautiful and scenic place, with changing leaves in the fall, and long hot days in the summer. The beauty of nature is all around, and you are just a short drive from some very appealing state parks and green spaces. Delta Lake State Park is probably the largest and most popular in the area, with a manmade beach, boat launch, campground, hiking trails, picnic pavilions and more. You will often find many locals biking and jogging the beaten trails here, and it is a great way to get out and enjoy the weather while getting your workout in.

With all of the beautiful outdoors and preserved historic downtown, it is easy to enjoy all of the aspects of life in Rome, but there is much more to it than that.

You have the Capital Theatre, the Rome Art and Community Center, the Rome Historical Society, and the Jervis Public Library, which includes the John B. Jervis House and Collection. There are often art walks in the center of town as well as community-sponsored events to help raise funds for these organizations.
