It is a quaint little town with moderately nice neighbors. The yards are always in excellent condition, the parks are small but entertaining enough. Houses that line the streets are taken care of and never show a bad representation of the neighborhood.

Marietta is a very cute little town, with some very nice people and small local businesses. It has some nice historical spots and a great river trail, but some parts of the town could use some improvement. The sidewalks are wonky and some of the housing could use a bit of an update.
Quiet town and nice area to live. Would like more things to do and stricter road enforcement (a lot of speeding and accidents)
