Marietta is graced with an historic town square, five National Register Historic Districts, a dramatic mountain backdrop, and just enough mileage between it and Atlanta to give it the élan of a cosseted and well-heeled small town with the vibrancy of an urban environment. A pocket-sized parcel 18 miles northwest of Atlanta, this county seat of Cobb County is rich in arts and culture, Civil War history and heritage. The Marietta Trolley offers one-hour, fully-narrated tours, Thursday-Sunday, from Antebellum Square, past grand Antebellum homes, to the battlefields at Kennesaw Mountain. Purchase a Marietta Heritage Passport for savings on admission to the Marietta Museum of History, The Root House Museum and the Marietta Gone With the Wind Museum: Scarlett on the Square. When visiting Marietta, make the Marietta Visitors Bureau located in the old Western & Atlantic Railroad Passenger Depot your first stop for local information.
