I’m finally starting to settle into my new apartment in my new city (Marietta, GA). Whenever you go somewhere new, you have to make a list of all the new places you want to go and things you want to do.
Now, I picked Marietta because it’s one of those cute towns. I grew up going to the Square because that’s where our dance store was. My dad worked at the hospital right down the street.
Marietta Square – They’ve added so many restaurants and cute places in the Square! I’m bummed I missed Restaurant Week, but I’ll make up for it.
SunTrust Park & The Battery
Refuge Dance – I’m going to start taking classes again!
Atlanta Botanical Garden – I went a couple of years ago with a good friend in the winter, and I would love to go in the springtime. They have an outdoor kitchen and do demonstrations with different Atlanta chefs! The also have a cocktail hour every Thursday from May to September. Count me in!
Parks, Trails, & Outdoor Spaces
Sope Creek Paper Mill Ruins
Kennesaw Mountain – I actually don’t remember ever climbing Kennesaw Mountain. I thought it would be fun to take Olivia on a new adventure.
McFarlane Nature Park
I think that’s a good start. PLUS, I’m only 15-20 minutes from Atlanta (on a good day), so I can go try new restaurants and concerts and all sorts of things in Atlanta. I think we might be celebrating my sister’s birthday at a Taco & Margarita Festival (if I can talk her into it!). What else should I add to my Marietta bucket list? I’m here for a while, so I definitely want to make the most of it.
