Anchored by Glover Park on the historic square, Marietta hosts many festivals and concerts throughout the year. Surrounding the square are unique shops, restaurants, live theater, and county government offices. The heart of the city is also home to beautiful antebellum homes with gorgeous southern landscapes.

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.
