Did you hear what they’re saying about Rome?

Country Home Magazine Study Ranks Most Eco-Friendly Cities and Towns and Utica-Rome ranks in the top 25. For details, see complete study.

According to Bert Sperling’s “Cities Ranked & Rated: Your Guide to the Best Places to Live in the U.S. and Canada,” the Utica-Rome region is one of the least-stressed mid-sized metropolitan statistical areas in America. Only two other places were ranked less stressful places to live.

The March 2004 edition of Inc. magazine ranks the Utica-Rome area one of the “Top 25 Small Cities for Doing Business in America” based on affordability, and the current and historical job growth as the most objective indicator of a region’s economic vitality for entrepreneurs.

Also, Rome has received the consecutive honor of being named Tree City USA.

In 2005, Rome was voted as the 19th Most Secure City by Farmers Insurance Group, and the 7th Best Golf City in America by Golf Digest.

In 2002, Rome was included in the Mohawk Valley region's designation as an All America City Finalist, and was also named a New York State Quality Community.
