Marietta is 20 miles northwest of Atlanta and easily accessible to I-75. This historic community is the Cobb County seat and a sought-after location, which is why we’re currently building two communities here, North Square and The Registry at Marietta Square. Our communities are just steps away from historic Marietta Square and the vibrant lifestyle that Marietta has to offer.
Life on The Square
Marietta Square is the place to be in Marietta. This historic downtown is bursting with culture and charm. There are numerous shops and restaurants as well as museums and theaters.
On the north end of The Square is the Marietta Square Farmers Market. There are more than 65 vendors selling fruits, vegetables, bread, and more. The market is open year-round on Saturday mornings and on Sunday afternoons from May to October.
The central point of Marietta Square is Glover Park. The park features a fountain, gazebo, train engine playground, and a stage where concerts are held. A free concert series is held on the last Friday evening of the month from April to September.Marietta Festivals and Events
The Glover Park Concert Series is just one of many special events that Marietta hosts throughout the year. Art Walk is a free, self-guided walking tour of the art galleries, museums, and cultural venues in Marietta Square. It happens on first Friday evenings from March to November.
Other events not to be missed are Taste of Marietta, a food festival at the end of April; May-Retta Daze, a craft festival held the first weekend in May; the annual Fourth of July celebration; Chalktoberfest, an art and beer festival held in October; and Winter Wonderland, a series of holiday events that benefit the community.
The Mountain to River Trail
New to Marietta is the Mountain to River (M2R) Trail, a 13.5-mile long trail that connects Kennesaw Mountain to the Chattahoochee River. The trail passes through Marietta Square and ends on Atlanta Street. It will eventually connect to other trails in Cobb County, creating a countywide system for both pedestrians and cyclists. The City of Marietta recently completed the trail’s pedestrian bridge and celebrated with a grand opening festival.
These are just a few of the reasons why we think you’ll love living in Marietta, GA. Come see for yourself what life is like in Marietta. Visit our communities today.
