Default 1998 Accord Tire Noise?

I've got a 1998 Accord Coupe with 180,000 miles. Yesterday, the car started
making a loud droning noise which seems to be coming from the back wheels.
My first thought was I was driving on a low air pressure tire, but tire
pressure is fine. It's a loud drone that gets louder the faster I go. Like
the noise snow tires used to make when they were on a car or, sometimes the
noise you get when driving on certain grooved pavements.
Could it be a wheel bearing or something like that? Tires are rotated every
7k and they were done 3k ago.

Any thoughts?

Sure sounds like a wheel bearing!

If it is a wheel bearing, guesstimate on cost at the shop?

Check for a large-ish rock or rocks stuck in the tread?
