Explore the original western frontier.
Marietta is located in the heart of Washington County in southeast Ohio. Ancient tribes and pioneers found it ideally positioned between the rivers and the hills — fertile land bearing a wealth of natural resources. Early in US history, the city was designated as the starting place for further exploration — and from this spot westward expansion began. As a result, this star on the map is still on the road to almost anywhere.
Nestled in the picturesque hills of the Mid-Ohio Valley, the historic riverboat town and environs are idyllic places for holidays, vacations, romantic getaways, family gatherings and conventions.
Plan for a day, a weekend, a week, or an extended stay — the Pioneer City, the historic gateway to the Northwest Territory, is a great place to make your next stop.
