On our way up to LaFayette, Georgia for our 4th of July trip we stopped in Rome, Georgia for lunch. Downtown Rome is really a quaint little place with lots of cute stores and restaurants.
A friend of Rob’s recommended a couple places to eat. We ended up at Schroeder’s Deli. We had Calzones and pizza and fried okra.
We noticed a park when were walking to the restaurant from down the street where we had parked. After lunch, we got Daisy out of the car and brought over to Heritage Park to let her run around and use the facilities.
Our waiter suggested that we drive up to the top of Myrtle Hill Cemetery to see great views of the city. We were glad to take his advice. Not only were great views, but the little bit of looking around at the head stones proved to be interesting. Many of the graves there date back to the Civil War.
Rob wanted to see 2 more things before leaving Rome, one of which was the Rome’s Braves stadium as well as Berry College.
Berry College is a private school with about 2,300 students. The buildings are beautiful and there were several families of deer spread among the campus.
Last stop before continuing on to LaFayette was the State Mutual Stadium where the Class-A minor league Rome Braves play.
