A Great Place To Live

Welcome to Marietta, Georgia, where residents are neighbors and neighbors are friends.
Located just minutes northwest of Atlanta, Marietta offers big-city opportunities with small-town charm.

All-American City 2006 On June 11, 2006, the National Civic League crowned the city of Marietta one of the 10 best communities in the nation as a 2006 All-America City, the oldest and most respected community recognition award in the country. Marietta Reads!, the Marietta City Schools citywide effort to foster reading and literacy in the community, successfully helped the city illustrate how the program has increased student test scores and book circulation.
