Things to Do 

Marietta Square Market is a carefully selected group of 18 restaurants located downtown. The long history of Marietta is thriving through its architecture, interior, and unique trolley near the market. Any appetite is sure to be satisfied with the number of food options available within close proximity. Just a few short paces away from the square sits Glover Park Brewery, the place to kick back with your best folks and explore a generous selection of locally crafted beers while watching the game. Don’t leave your dog at home, as the beer garden welcomes furry friends! 
 
Mark your calendars for Taste of Marietta, an annual event in the square that allows over 70 restaurants and caterers to showcase their best food for you to try with live music and games for the kids.
