Marietta Community Guide
MARIETTA AT A GLANCE
Just a stone’s throw from both the bustling city streets of Atlanta and the quiet serenity of the North Georgia mountains, there exists a city that harmoniously blends the charm and character that exists between the two.
Recently honored with an All-American City Award, Marietta offers what few places in the country can still deliver: the sought-after environment where ‘getting business done’ and ‘getting away from it all’ can live and breathe together.
MARIETTA IS LOCATED IN NORTH METRO ATLANTA

Describe Our Perfect Day in Marietta
A morning visit to the farmers’ market on the square is always a treat. If the farmers’ market is not going on, I still like to go downtown and sit with a good book at the local cafe or by the fountain in the square if it’s a nice day. Sometimes I might even happen onto an art or food festival in the square. It seems like there is always something going on downtown. If it’s a really hot day, I would take the family to White Water and cool off on the slides. If the day isn’t so warm, I might decide to get artsy myself and paint some pottery or visit the Marietta Cobb Museum of Art to see what the professionals are up to. Lunch or dinner on the square is always a treat with tons of good local restaurants to choose from. After dinner I would catch a show at the refurbished Strand theater or listen to live music at one of the many local establishments.
