People are still going on vacation in the days of coronavirus, though they are opting for destinations to which they may drive rather than fly.
Rome and Floyd County has much to offer vacationers seeking some quality time in the great outdoors, enthuses Kristi Kent, Director of Communications for the Georgia’s Rome Office of Tourism. Visitors (and locals) can enjoy the trails, waterways, gardens, and even local history. Kent asserts that Georgia’s Rome is open for business.
People drive great distances to reach Rome and Floyd County, even up to 14 hours, adds Kent.
This community has many treasures of which even locals are not aware, says Kent. Information is available at www.romegeorgia.org and via the Georgia’s Rome social media outlets.
Kent says that tours of a local landmark – Rome’s Clocktower – will resume on Saturday, July 11th. Space will be limited due to the need to observe social distancing. The Rome Area History Center is slated to re-open its doors to the public on Tuesday, July 7th.
