It gives you a good look at the history of Marietta and whether you are from here or just visiting they will tell you some great places to visit. There is a lot of history here that even locals might now know so I recommend to get out there and learn.

(Note: After many tries to get there while the center was open - we could not find posted hours - we made it.) Located in the Marietta Train Depot building (long since used for passenger service) just off the Marietta Square, the Marietta Welcome Center and Visitor's Bureau has a pretty good selection of pamphlets on local attractions and activities....

Wonderful visitor's center for Marietta with helpful, knowledgeable people staffing it. There are lots of maps and brochures on what there is to do in the area and all the famous historical sites too. You can buy tickets here for the Christmas tour of historic homes which is one on the top tours in the southeast.

I always stop by to check events to come. Very friendly staff. The one event that I won't miss is the Marietta Pilgrimage Christmas Home Tour. I love strolling through the houses and admiring the renovations, Christmas decorations, and the neighborhood. Negative: I always think that the price for the tours are a little on the high side, and some... More

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
