I find it very odd that the number one attraction in Rome, GA is a cemetery. It is a nice place to take a walk with a pleasant view from the top. It is an easy walk to the top for someone of average fitness.

The road into this historic cemetery needs a little work, it is a one-way maze and all uphill. Not for those who might have a tendency to carsickness.

The drive through this cemetery is beautiful and full of gorgeous monuments and tombstones. There is a sizable confederate section, a former First Lady buried here, a Known Soldier and many other attractions of interest, including a new Mausoleum.

This is a place with a lot of history, and has great views of the city. Need to allow time to be able to walk around to look at all of the headstones.

Beautiful Cemetery with some historical burial plots. At the top of Myrtle Hill, you can see most of the City of Rome. A little sketchy at night but worth a trip during the day.

This is a very historic cemetery located in Rome. The older headstones are elaborate and beautiful. There is a confederate burial area which is very interesting. The view from the top of the hill is really breathtaking, its one of the best views of Rome and I know many people who would picnic there. The road around the cemetery is... More
