The two ladies who anchor the welcome center are so kind and helpful! They love to chat, so do come with some time to enjoy their stories and information about the area. They have tourist information about the Marietta Square, all of Cobb County, additional must-sees in Georgia, Kennesaw Mountain Park, as well as calendars of local events like the... More

The staff is friendly and knowledgable. There are brochures for just about anything you can think of to do in the area and the staff can give you great tips on when to visit, where to park, etc.

Visiting Marietta, GA for the first time, I found the Visitor's Center in downtown Marietta to be very helpful and informative. The woman who worked behind the desk was very pleasant and epitomized the spirit of "southern hospitality". For example, I wanted to take a trolley tour of the Marietta area, and she called ahead to be sure there was... More

if you come to the Marietta area this is THE place to visit FIRST. They have ALL the information you need regarding historical sites, museums, driving tours, etc. If you have any questions the staff are more than happy to assist you. They are engaging and will make recommendations for just about anything local.

This is definitely the place to stop before you begin a tour of Marietta, or even if you have visited many times. It's housed in the old train station, and you have to cross the tracks to get to the center from the parking lot. As other reviewers have said, there are LOTS of brochures and the staff of locals/volunteers... More

Great place to stop by for your first (or 50th) visit, always something new to learn about Marietta and the area. Information available about the Marietta Square (shops, restaurants, events) as well as surrounding areas. As the staff and volunteers are local, they often have insider tips about best times to visit, suggestions for other activities, and helpful tips (parking,... More

The Marietta Welcome Center and Visitor's Bureau is in the old train depot and offers a museum exhibit free of charge. The docents in the visitors center are always helpful and informative and the building itself is beautiful with wide wood floors and brick walls. There is a huge assortment of brochures for Marietta history and points of interest along... More
