ATLANTApix: Marietta Welcome Center

Any first-time visit to Marietta, Georgia, should begin with a stop by the Marietta Welcome Center. I went there early last month when I visited the Gone With the Wind Museum, next door, and I'm so glad I did.

As much online research as you may conduct before visiting a place, there's much more about a destination to be discovered by visiting its Welcome Center. The "city docents" can tell you so much about the city, about the current hot spots, and they're often very forthcoming, with little provocation, of tales of local lore or history...which always greatly enhance a visit for me.

The Marietta Welcome Center is charming, centrally located on Historic Marietta Square, and is jam-packed with information.

ATLANTApix of the tourATLANTA blog features a "photo-of-the-day" of Atlanta. Come back tomorrow for a new one!
