Sightseeing

Collection of some of my favorite places
The park opens at sunrise and closes at sunset. You can bike up the mountain Monday to Friday but it is closed for biking Saturday and Sunday. You can hike up both the road or the trail or combine the both. It takes me 20 mins to get up from the trail and 30 mins from the road. I would say it is an intermediate hike and probably best if you exercise regularly to take it on. It’s about 2 miles up. I set aside about an hour to hike it and try to hike 2-3 times a week. Bring a hammock to enjoy the park. There is overflow parking if the visitor center parking is full. On the weekends, visitor parking is always full but I always try to find that magical spot this will open up just for me. I have enjoyed a bike ride from the park to downtown Marietta. It’s nice to do that as well.

Marietta Square is a quaint little town with lots of history, cute little shops, breweries, and services. Fun little playground for the kids to play. Parking can be difficult when it’s a prime hour. I suggest arriving a little early to find a spot to park if you have set plans. You may have to walk. There are many free spots to park around the Square. But, there is also the ability to pay to park as well.

Don’t miss out on seeing the iconic Big Chicken. You can’t miss it even if you just do a drive by. Cool to see. Inside, they offer t-shirts and some history about it.

Breweries and Bars

Collection of some fun places
Usually offers a food trucks, comedians, live music and yoga. You can find out more about the offerings at https://www.facebook.com/GloverParkBrewery/ It does close a little early but has a fun local vibe to it and has fun games to play for free. I’m not a big beer drinker but I enjoy the atmosphere. Limited parking is available at the brewery for free but paid parking is close by if everything is full.

Fun place on the weekend for food and alcohol. Many weekend nights they have live music in the back in the patio area. After entering the building from the front of Johnnys, just walk all the way through the bar to the back door. https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/georgia/johnnie-maccrackens-celtic-pub-ga/amp/

Free Marietta Beer Bus

The Marietta Beer Bus is a great way to get around safely to see all the great breweries in the area. It runs every 30 mins from the following locations: Shezmu Cellars, Schoolhouse Brewing, Red Hare Brewing, Ironmonger Brewing, Viking Alchemist Meadery, Treehorn Cider and Glover Park Brewery. It only runs specific Saturdays so I recommend you check the site for details on when or if it will be available during your stay. https://freebeerbus.com/marietta/ - **There is also one offered in the local city of Kennesaw that is great as well. Check the website for details.
