America's Greatest Main Streets

When in Rome...Georgia, don’t miss a stroll down Broad Street. It’s a veritable case study in small-town revitalization; locals have invested millions of dollars since the hub’s precipitous decline in the 1970s, and it shows. There have been more than 120 building rehabs in the central business district, and the area’s many Victorian homes and churches have been loved back to life.
Worth a Stop: In front of the Municipal Building sits a bronze Romulus and Remus statue—the classic symbol of Rome, Italy—that an Italian governor presented to the town back in 1929.
