(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

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
