Rome welcomes bicyclists, as this bike-friendly community offers bike rental stations, bike paths and bike racks in front of buildings. If biking isn't your thing, Rome is still easily accessible by car, train and plane, as three New York State Thruway exits lead to Rome, as well as five State Routes. The Rome Station on Martin Street is serviced by Amtrak, with multiple departure every day.
If the Arts are more your style, the Capitol Theatre remains the only building in Rome constructed for the specific purpose of exhibiting motion pictures. Opening its doors in 1928, much of the original decor remains, including the theatre's 3 manual, 7 rank Moeller theatre organ. Currently, the Capitol Theatre is undergoing a restoration, where you can keep tabs on here. Rome is also home to the Rome Art & Community Center and the Rome Community Theatre.
Did you know Rome is home to the Pledge of Allegiance? Author Francis Bellamy was laid to rest in Rome, and you can visit his grave and monument. It's also home to Fort Stanwix National Monument, which commemorates the major role the original fort had in helping America defeat the British at the Battle of Saratoga. With over 14,000 paper records, visit the Rome Historical Society and take a stroll through the Gansevoort-Bellamy Historic District.
