There is a reason Rhome is known as the “Crossroads to the Metroplex.” The city is located at the intersection of two major thoroughfares that lead directly to North Texas’ largest cities: Texas 114 to Dallas and U.S. 81/287 to Fort Worth.
While many enjoy living in Rhome because of the direct access to the Metroplex, plenty of folks also like the city for its small-town charm.
Rhome has a citizenry that is actively engaged in the community and city government.
Some of the city’s main events each year include veterans ceremonies at the Rhome Veteran Park and an annual fall festival that includes a parade.
