Sometimes you just need a spacious, air-conditioned area to wander through for a change of scenery. Mount Berry Mall is small for mall standards, but they have done a great job making it welcoming and relevant to Rome. The photo murals on the walls are a tribute to Rome, its residents, and especially its history. Next time you are at the mall (hopefully it’s this Thursday, July 18th to visit us at the Summer Mall Showcase! –details below), make your trip into a Photo Chase Challenge, where your child(ren)’s mission is to search the murals for the subjects listed below!*
- A vehicle with large wheels (this is near Victoria’s Secret, so skip it if you want to avoid some less-than-kid-friendly photos)
- A riverboat that loaded cotton
- A large yellow flower
- An old train close to a new train
- A cannon
- A horse (that jumps)
- A clock
- An explosion of color
- A baseball team
- A bridge
- An old book-mobile or a vehicle with books
- People holding hands
- A church
- People weaving
- Women playing a sport
*Note: If you start from the food court heading right at the pretzel place, follow the walls counter-clockwise and you’ll find the pictures in order (last photo is in the food court).
My 4 and 7 year old children had a blast completing their “missions!” Complete the visit with a pretzel or some nuggets, and you’ll have a fun (air-conditioned) outing for a few bucks!
And don’t forget…
Come visit us and other local businesses at the Mall’s Summer Showcase THIS THURSDAY, JULY 18 from 2-5 PM for games, giveaways, and FUN!!!
