Rome is an interesting city to get out and walk the downtown. There seems to be a significant cultural life there, with interesting things to do, and that includes a Braves minor league team.

There are neighborhoods to avoid in Rome, but that goes for anywhere.

Default Avoid

You need to look at Cartersville or Acworth. Rome is a nasty, nasty place. Very dense government housing in the city; lots of gangs, drugs, and violence.

I visited Rome in Sept and found it to be a friendly city. But I'm from South Florida so almost any city would be considered friendly compared to here. I plan on going back the end of Nov and looking at moving to the area. I wish I could advise you regarding landscape issues but I can't. If you should need a relator look up Tony Lane at Remax of Rome. The guy knows Rome and the surrounding area.

You will probably find more work in Bartow County (spec. Cartersville), as it is seing more growth.. Rome just doesn't strike me to be the type of rapidly growing area that would benefit a landscaper..
Rome does have some very lovely old neighborhoods right by the downtown around the clocktower on the hill.

You cannot give it that nickname, as that nickname already belongs to the Florida panhandle. (Not in an insulting way..)

By the way, the jobs pay less cause you don't need as much money to live there...thats why homes are cheaper, lower salaries. Why can't people understand that?
