Located in Cobb County just 30 minutes north of Downtown Atlanta, Marietta is one of the most popular and fastest growing cities in the metro Atlanta area. With a rich history dating back to the 1800s, Marietta boasts a blend of urban and suburban living. It serves as the county seat and offers a range of amenities, including historic sites, cultural attractions, numerous festivals, and a vibrant downtown area.
If you are moving to Marietta, or are looking at houses with a Marietta address, it is important to find out if you are living inside or outside the city limits. Marietta is the county seat of Cobb County, meaning that unincorporated areas of Cobb County (areas outside city limits of other Cobb County cities) will have a Marietta address. If your address is inside the city limits of Marietta, your residence is zoned for the Marietta City School District. If you are outside the City of Marietta limits, your residence is part of the Cobb County School District attendance zone. One of the largest of such areas with a Marietta address, but outside the Marietta city limits, is nearby East Cobb. If you are moving to the East Cobb portion of Marietta, check our our East Cobb Moving Guide.
