I’m a crocheter and knitter, so I had to see these! Luckily we were there on a Saturday when they were open. Only giving them four stars because the space they keep them in could be better — when we went, they were kind of shoved in a poorly lit corner window and surrounded by retail items, making photos a little tough. If you go to the other end of the shop, they have an impressive amount of boutique yarns for sale, including Noro and Hedgehog Fibres.
In stature, this is probably the most impressive “world’s largest” item in Casey! Beautiful landscaping and right by the street, making it easy to get photo ops.
I love that you can walk right up and ring the windchimes! As someone else mentioned, the sound of them isn’t very pretty haha But still a neat stop with beautiful landscaping! If you go behind the fence behind it, you can see the workshop where they’re building more of the “world’s largest” items and a visitors map where you can pin where you’re from. When we were there, they were working on the world’s largest golf club :)
This was a cool stop! We went in August and I was actually more impressed by their beautiful gardens in bloom all around the property — gorgeous! We didn’t go inside the restaurant / shop, but it looked nice.
Love the creativity of this place, and there's always something new under construction!
Beautiful historic cemetery on one of Rome's seven hills, overlooking where the three rivers of Rome meet downtown. Great place to spend an afternoon and get in a hike with all the stairways. Head to the back side near the new mausoleum to find a sweet hidden garden.
FYI: The Roadtrippers map pinpoints the wrong location. It's actually a few blocks north on South Broad Street at 20 Myrtle Street, Rome, GA 30161.
FREE. Open sunrise to sunset, although the gate is locked at specific hours (usually by 6pm).
One of the historic seven hills of Rome, Jackson Hill is a great hidden gem right downtown! Great place to get in a quick hike, or stay a while and explore all the trails it offers. It's also great for mountain biking, and there's a bike course near the top of the hill. Be sure to check out the labyrinth at the bottom of the hill as well as The Last Stop Gift Shop for locally made gifts and art.
"Historic Jackson Hill was the location of Fort Norton, an earthen fortification system which defended Rome during the Civil War. During the Great Depression, the area was redeveloped by the Works Progress Administration, which included the Rome Civic Center, an amphitheater (now the Labyrinth of Rome), several rock bridges and more. Today, winding trails provide a quiet getaway just blocks from Downtown Rome. Outdoor exhibits include the Boswell Cabin Trailhead, a cotton gin, replicas of Civil War-era cannons, the Noble Brothers Foundry Lathe and a Corliss Steam Engine. Interpretive markers tell the story of the Civil War in Rome. Parking is available in the Rome-Floyd Visitor Center parking lot."
Open sunrise to sunset.

Huge, delicious menu with local favorites, great music, funky retro decor, and a staff that feels like family. My favorites are the Orange Turkey, the Peachy Q, and splitting a Jam Bar with a friend, if you're lucky enough to get there before they sell out. Anytime someone comes to Rome for the first time, I always recommend they try Jamwich!
Stayed here previously when it was The Mulberry and recently now that it's The Brice. Nice modern upgrades. Glad they kept the courtyard somewhat the same, and all the books in the lobby are a cool touch. Sad they got rid of the outdoor hot tub. Door greeters / valets were all very nice. Lobby area could be larger -- gets crowded quickly at check-in time.
Peach slushie is a must! Lots of other peachy items to choose from.
