Fall is here and with that brings some of the most beautiful views downtown! Downtown Rome may not be the first place you think of when you want to see those leaves change, but we’re here to tell you you are missing some gorgeous views if you haven’t seen Downtown Rome in the fall!
One of the most spectacular views would have to be on E 1st Ave where the Coca-Cola ghost sign is! The Coca-Cola mural is one a favorite photo spot for many – but add the gorgeous red and orange leaves that soon turn to yellow for the perfect fall photo!
Another favorite spot? The Clocktower, of course! Now, the Clocktower may not have the spectacular views that E 1st Ave has, but it’s definitely a noteworthy location. Not only is Clocktower Hill beautiful, but you can see the changing colors all around downtown from the top of the hill!
Of course, the most popular fall view is our Ginkgo trees on E 5th Ave along the Forrest Place. These beauties change from green to a gorgeous yellow in a matter of a couple of weeks! If you’re lucky and it doesn’t rain too much, they may stick around for a while too! Be sure to keep a watch on Downtown Rome’s social media for #GinkgoWatch! This has become a favorite!
Of course, there are plenty of beautiful views throughout downtown. Trees along E 1st St can be absolutely beautiful, along with the median trees right in the middle of Broad Street.
Many of our stores also decorate for fall! Some even have fall treats, like Caramel Apples. Head to Honeymoon Bakery or Mountain’s Ice Cream to grab a sweet, fall treat!
If you’re looking for a fun evening or weekend trip, Downtown Rome is the perfect place! There are so many views throughout downtown, plus great shopping and places to eat!
We can’t wait to see you downtown!
