Honestly, Marietta is a bustling and busy city in Georgia. With several places to visit and multiple shopping centers, you won't ever find yourself bored! I personally enjoy the various parks and recreational activities available here. The community is also very welcoming and loving to anyone! Since I came here from a different state, I was concerned about how I would be able to fit back into the community and find people I trust. But, Marietta changed that. I found myself doing more stuff for the community and meeting more new people every day. Attending the various festivals that are held at Marietta Square also helps with being more involved in the community. Overall, Marietta is one of the best cities in Georgia to live in.

Marietta has been a wonderful place to grow up. There is a strong community feel for a suburban town. For someone looking to start a career, raise a family, or retire they should consider Marietta. It is especially great for those who enjoy active lifestyles as there are many places to get outside. Even though I am finishing degree in another state my goal is to move back to Marietta as soon as I am finished and continue investing in this great city!
Marietta is okay. It's one of those smaller towns, and you can't really go around without seeing someone's face more than once. The majority of this city is friendly, and most things are close by such as malls, grocery stores, activities, etc. Not much to complain about!
