Around Rome

Although we certainly have LOTS to do here on campus, Berry is fortunate to be located in Rome, Georgia, a city which boasts many recreational, sporting, cultural and other opportunities  year round.  And better yet, we are within a short drive from many other great towns, cities, parks located in Northwest Georgia and surrounding areas.

You can find information about off-campus adventures  here; however, know that there is much more out there – we're just trying to help you get started.  

You might want to also check out the Greater Rome Chamber of Commerce at or the Greater Rome Convention and Visitors Center at Also visit and for more information about events in Rome. 

Enjoy your exploration and adventures!
