Marietta is one of the largest suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. Its residents are both blue-collar and white-collar workers, and it has a decidedly young population, with many well-educated singletons in their 20s and 30s. One of the best things about renting an apartment in Marietta is the community feel. Its picturesque central square is host to weekly farmers markets and annual cultural events, such as Art in the Park.
Renting an apartment in Marietta puts you close to lots of Southern history. Lovers of yore will enjoy six historic districts, a number of museums, and Kennesaw House, one of the few buildings that remained standing after the city was burned to the ground during General Willian T. Sherman?s March to the Sea.
From Marietta, commuters can hop on I-75 southbound to drive to jobs in Atlanta. Commuters who want to avoid Midtown or Downtown Atlanta can take the I-285 Perimeter highway south to I-20 or east/northeast to Sandy Springs and Dunwoody.
