Long rows of houses decorated with gingerbread molding and neat gardens that create picturesque views of front yards can describe any one of the seven historic districts found within Marietta’s city limits. Besides the well-maintained residential homes, the core of Marietta boasts of a city square that built up around the courthouse. Today, the courthouse still stands along with fine-dining establishments, a haunted pub and a number of stores selling everything from cupcakes to fine art.
Wedged between the historic city of Kennesaw and the metro city of Sandy Springs, Marietta combines the quiet feel of living in a small town with the options and diversity of urban life. Marietta is home to Dobbins Air Force Base as well the rolling Indian Hills Country Club.
Residents enjoy living in Marietta, not only because of the beautiful homes, but also for the variety of educational options for both youth and adults. The wide array of parks and recreational programs help keep the city green while providing its residents many options for exercise and entertainment.
