Tired of staying home? Too hot to be outside? The Mount Berry Mall is open (stores inside have limited hours), and there is room to remain socially distant. Sometimes you just need a spacious, temperature-controlled area to wander through for a change of scenery. Our Photo Chase Challenge is a fun, simple activity to get you out of the house with a purpose. Your Mission: Find the murals listed below!* 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. [Updated 7/2/20]
Mission: Mount Berry Photo Challenge
Find the following murals on the wall throughout Mount Berry Mall
- 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!
