Marietta-Washington County Convention & Visitors Bureau

Marietta , Ohio , is a picturesque river town with European ambiance. Located on the Muskingum and Ohio Rivers , Marietta was the first permanent settlement in the Northwest Territory , established in 1788. Its brick streets are lined with lush hardwood trees and opulent Victorian homes.

Our city is always alive with activity, modern yet delightfully old. With lots of history, two waterways, and a bustling downtown, it's no wonder the Smithsonian Magazine ranked it as the #6 out of 20 best small towns to visit in 2014. National Geographic Magazine also voted it as one of the best places to live and best adventure town. The vibrant historic district offers many distinctive stores, antique shops, boutiques, and galleries, as well as several independent restaurants and cozy cafes.

Historic sites and museums include Campus Martius, The Ohio River Museum, and The Castle. Harmar Village is linked to downtown Marietta by a historic turn style railroad bridge that is open to foot traffic. Harmar is home to historical museums, quaint antique shops, and a wide range of eateries.
