Marietta vacation rentals

Marvelous Marietta

Marietta is just 20 miles northwest of Atlanta, so a Marietta vacation rental can be a great value option for visiting the Georgia state capital. However, Marietta has plenty to discover of its own – its historic downtown has a vibrant dining and bar scene boasting a myriad of locally owned restaurants showcasing diverse culinary influences, while live music, theaters, galleries, and local craft breweries all vie for attention. Take a tour around town on Marietta’s historic trolley bus and you’ll discover the earliest recorded settlement here predates Atlanta or Chattanooga, so one thing Marietta has in plenty is history.

Explore downtown Marietta

Strolling through the historic downtown district of Marietta is a must for soaking up the atmosphere of the town. Do visit the former railroad depot, now a visitor center, and Kennesaw House, which is home to the Marietta Museum of History. Just around the corner, William Root House Museum and Garden offers a glimpse into the lives of an 1850s merchant and his family. The streets nearby are full of restaurants, as well as the fascinating Marietta Cobb Museum of Art, and many boutique and artisan shops all worth exploring. Look out for farmers and artisan markets in Marietta Square.

Historic Marietta and Kennesaw Mountain Park

Marietta and nearby Kennesaw Mountain was the site of a fierce Civil War battle in 1864. Today, the site is a National Battlefield Park where the beautiful, forested hillsides give little hint at the ferocity of the fighting that took place. Begin your visit with a trip to the visitor center and museum to learn about the history of the battle site. Or, for a fun way to cool off, how about a trip to Marietta’s big theme park, Six Flags White Water? If you’re staying at your Marietta vacation rental with kids, this 40-acre attraction has everything you need to keep them amused: slides, chutes, rides, a lazy river, and wave pool.

Sunny Georgia summers or fall adventures

Marietta enjoys warm summers, with the average temperature in August being in the 80s. These warm temperatures usually stretch from May well into September and, occasionally, October. Although Marietta winters can get cold, it rarely freezes or snows. This makes renting a Marietta vacation rental during the fall, winter, and spring seasons an attractive idea if you’d like to hike, bike, or explore the wonderful history and national parks of the region.

Riverside escapades in Marietta

In addition to the Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park, Marietta is convenient for the Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area – less than a 30-minute drive from Marietta vacation rentals. This forested, flower-filled river valley offers visitors an opportunity to explore the Georgia backwoods. Its trails and river are ideal for birdwatching, hiking, biking, and fishing. Or you can canoe or raft on this wide, enchanting river. Floating along the moody waters past the tree-lined riverbanks, and rocky bluffs is a wonderfully lazy way to spend a warm summer’s day.
