Silver Comet Trail

Reviewed By HCovik - Atlanta, Georgia

We generally walk here at least once a week for about 3 miles, starting at the Nickajack Elementary school (Mavell rd) or at the corner of Fountain rd and the E-W Connector.
It's paved, so you'd have to watch the bicyclists. Not all of them give you a warning ("on your right") and some think they're in the Tour the France.
It's not lit, so don't press your luck by walking after sunset.

Marietta Square

Colorful gardens and park in Marietta. Perfect for picnic lunches in the summer.

Reviewed By Martin S - Harpenden, England, United Kingdom

The first time I visited Marietta Square was in October 2017 and it was just great! Lots of nice shops and funky restaurants. My wife and I visited again last week (March 2018) and, well, we were surprised. First, most places don't open until 10am or later. Second, they seem to have ripped out a lot of trees and are remodelling the side walk along one whole side of the square - its a big building site. Also we noticed that a few of the shops that were there last year have closed down and are empty. So, all in all, a bit disappointing to what it was. Hopefully by Summer 2018 it will look a lot better - but in March 2018 it was, like, eh... meh.

Convenient and professionally run executive course. Friendly, well trained staff who act like they enjoy working with the public. Over the last 4 years, management company has upgraded the course tees to greens. Somewhat challenging with hole distance and sand trap placements. Will use most clubs in bag. Large driving range with both chipping and putting greens.

Sope Creek Trail

Reviewed By David908 - Atlanta, Georgia

Several paths, some shared with bicycles. Heavily wooded with varying terrain, from relatively steep to flat. Lots of tree roots and eroded areas, so watch where you walk. A great area to hike on windy or especially sunny days because the trees will moderate both.

Concord Covered Bridge

Reviewed By JonquilCity - Smyrna, Georgia

This really is not a destination per say, but a reminder of our past. The bridge is currently closed for extensive repairs caused by careless drivers. There is really no safe place to park so plan your trip carefully. There are private property owners surrounding the bridge so be respectful of their property rights. The bridge will reopen for traffic on December 9, 2017.

Reviewed By VZAtl - Atlanta, GA

I golf here regularly and find a lot of good things about it: very relaxed atmosphere and good course for beginners, lots of par 3s, very inexpensive, generally friendly staff. Even though it is short there are some challenging holes with water hazards and bunkers and a couple of narrow and hilly fairways.

They do have the super-sized cups on the greens in addition to the normal cups which I kind of like. It is nice to have the option of playing a stress-free putting round if I want. I think it is a nice feature for beginners and does speed up the game.

The down-side is, I guess you get what you pay for: the greens are not particularly smooth, a couple of the fairways are like construction sites with dirt piles, exposed drains and felled trees, the drinks cart service is not particularly reliable (on a recent very hot Sunday it did not appear once in two hours). They also seem to overbook on the weekend - more than once we had to wait quite a long time as they ran out of carts!

Despite these flaws, it is a pretty good place to go for a short round of golf. On a day when it is not busy I can complete the course in two hours.

Marietta Museum of History

The Marietta Museum of History is one of Marietta's unique treasures. The museum is located in the Historic Kennesaw House, a structure built in 1845. Located just steps off the Marietta Square, the museum is a perfect afternoon activity for visitors to take in along with local lunch and shopping.

Reviewed By cheryl h - Durham, North Carolina

The museum is on the second floor of the historic Kennesaw House. In 1845 it was a cotton warehouse. It became the Fletcher House Hotel in 1855. During the Civil War it was used as a hospital and morgue.

It's a very well organized, wonderful museum covering the history of Marietta and Cobb County. I found the museum to have everything you expect from a history museum. My favorite parts were the displays showing everyday life but my husband liked the Civil War parts the best and had to stop to read everything.

Reviewed By Lance K

I saw this place reviewed on google maps and decided to try 1-hour special after a long flight from U.K. to US. The therapist was short, thin, young, but very strong and was able to manipulate muscles to a nice relaxing experience. I will repeat and maybe try hot shower next time. Have not tried other therapists here but three were on duty.

Marietta Confederate Cemetery

Reviewed By Jack L

If you understand the historic appeal of visiting cemeteries, then you don't want to miss this one. So many o the confederate dead were brought here from battle throughout north Georgia and Tennessee. There are also many important people and pioneers of this county and city, as well as people who had amazing or tragic stories. Like Mary Phagan, of the infamous Leo Frank lynching story. As in most cemetery visits, bring your smart phone and Google your way into the lives of so many interesting people.
