The Best Things for Seniors to Do in Marietta

Once you visit Winnwood, you will be amazed that such a gorgeous piece of property can be tucked away like a secret garden in Historic Marietta, Georgia. Although there is no need to leave the property to experience fine dining, live musical entertainment, intellectual discussions, or even shopping, Marietta and the surrounding area offers a variety of activities and attractions that seniors can enjoy. Here are some of the best things for seniors to do in Marietta:


Marietta Square

Within a short walking distance of Winnwood Retirement Community, the Marietta Square is a vibrant downtown area with historic charm. Many of our residents enjoy taking a stroll around the square, visiting local shops, enjoying the 30+ restaurants in the area, and attending events like concerts and festivals. For those interested in tasting the local craft beers and cocktails, there is Red Hare Brewing & Distilling on the square and Glover Park Brewery just a couple minutes walk away.

Also located in the Marietta Square, Glover Park is a lovely green space where seniors can relax, read, or have a picnic. It's a perfect spot for enjoying the outdoors and people-watching.
