I’ve always loved history. History tests? Not so much. But history? When told well, it’s like listening to your grandparents spin tales of what life was like way back when.
Whenever I’m on the Marietta Square, I think about taking a trolley tour—the hour-long ride includes the square; confederate, national & city cemeteries; antebellum homes (from the street); and the battlefields at Kennesaw Mountain.
And then I see the price tag–$20 for an adult ticket, $18 for students & seniors, & $12 for kids ages 4-12. Ouch.
During the “A Token to Marietta” promotion, the Historic Marietta Trolley Company is doing its part to celebrate the city’s 175th anniversary: You can buy one ticket & get one free for Marietta trolley tours through November 15, 2009. The deal lets you mix & match, too, so when you buy one ticket, you’ll get one of equal or lesser value for free.
The trolley departs from 131 Church Street, Marietta. 770-425-1006. You must arrive 15 minutes before the departure time to buy tickets (view the schedule).
