Marietta is the county seat and largest city in Cobb County. With approximately 60,000 residents, it is one of the largest suburbs of the Altanta metro area. It started humbly in 1833, when early settlers built homes near the Cherokee town Big Shanty. Marietta followed a traditional layout, with the town centered around a square with a court house. Today, the Marietta Square is surrounded by shops and restaurants. This area is the perfect place to stroll around and spend a leisurely afternoon with the family. The shops include several galleries and antique shops as well as clothing stores and specialty shops.
