Ballin’ on a Budget: Marietta Dates That Won’t Break the Bank

It’s important to take time often to make memories with your significant other. Sometimes date-night seems intimidating and expensive, but it doesn’t have to. Check out these affordable date night options in Marietta.

Take an art tour        

Downtown Marietta is an undiscovered art mecca with everything from galleries to murals to sculptures. Take a self-guided tour around town and snap some Instagram-ready couple shots in front of your favorite colorful masterpiece. The Marietta Arts Council provides locations and information about each of the current art works. Take your tour indoors and visit one of our lovely galleries like Robert Kent Galleries.

Stroll through the market    

Who says cute dates can’t happen in the morning? Every Saturday, the Marietta Square Farmers and Artisans Markets kick off at 9 a.m. just outside of the Marietta Square. Dozens of vendors between the two markets offer everything from specialty food items to fresh produce to local art. Grab your sweetheart a beautiful bouquet of seasonal flowers and sample some truly unique offerings. While this is a very affordable date, you may just find some must-have items to take home!

Take a hike

Enjoy the most beautiful parts of Marietta with your favorite person. The Mountain to River Trail gives you a scenic path from the Marietta Square to Kennesaw Mountain. Get to know your partner better while strolling hand-in-hand past murals, nature and incomparable views. Marietta is the perfect place for couples who love making memories while maintaining an active lifestyle.

Picnic in the park

What is more romantic than putting down a quilt in a beautiful area and sharing a meal that was made with love? If you lack culinary ability, make a stop at the Marietta Square Market for a delicious to-go dinner that can be enjoyed in the park. Take in the beauty of Glover Park in the Marietta Square while you enjoy each other’s company. Let the splash of a stunning fountain be the ambiance that takes your next date night to the next level.
