It means something different to every resident of the historic city. Some love the brick streets and small town charm, others the rich history and the view (and recreational opportunities) available with living on two rivers.
Many grew up here and their families have been residents for generations, while others, myself included, followed educational or professional opportunities here.

Some of my favorite things in my adopted city are the River Trail, where I see other regulars even on the coldest winter days, the helpful nature of the residents here and some of the very restaurants featured in these pages.
In our new quarterly magazine, My Marietta, we hope to show you much of what the Pioneer City has to offer, and explore your favorite aspects of the community.
There will be continuing features on Marietta businesses, the music scene, perks of life on the river and more. Along with traditional news stories, there will be online extras each time. This time, look for a digital tour of Dad's Primitive Workbench, a Front Street business, and a peek at a musical performance at the Adelphia. The full magazine will also be available at www.mariettatimes.com
Each issue will feature a different cover story. This time, it's "A Taste of Marietta," showing the best of the city's fine dining options.
Look for our next edition in the spring and discover more of our Marietta.
