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."

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.

A long drive from NOLA, but totally worth it! Was interesting to hear all the history and generations who've lived there.

Underestimated this restaurant! Had an enjoyable early dinner there. The blackened chicken ceaser wrap on a sun-dried tomato tortilla was delicious.

Beautiful location with massive rocks! Main perimeter trail is easy/moderate and well-marked. Lots of mini trails inside it that range in difficulty. Loved the "treasure hunt" provided by the front office -- learned some things and kept me engaged. It's hard to describe the beauty and magnitude of Panama Rocks. You just have to go see it yourself!

One note: I saw a user post that you should take caution if it's rained recently. I agree! I went on a day during a dry spell and there were still some slippery places from water and dead leaves.
