It is essentially impossible to enjoy the beautiful grounds at the Marietta National Cemetery due to the restrictions. You are not allowed to run, walk your dog, or even walk briskly through the grounds. These activities are considered "disrespectful."

However, you can drive your car all along the paths with abandon.

This site is in need of a rule change that makes it accessible to the local community. I have lived in Marietta for two years just a five minute walk from the front gates, and I rarely see anyone visiting. It is a shame to let this place go to waste.

People mention that you can picnic here in other reviews, but that is illegal and against the posted rules as well. Too bad.

If you've been to Arlington or other National Cemeteries, you know the moving experience it can be. Marietta, while certainly not as big, gives a similar sense. With patriots buried here from the nearby Civil War battles through our nation's other wars, and veterans passing since, this is worth a visit. Full or nearly full, they've opened another up in Canton, Georgia, but this one definitely has the historic impact on top of everything else.

We visit each year on a holiday, usually Memorial Day or Veterans Day. It is humbling to see all these graves - particularly those that are over 150 years old.

We came here on a Ghost Tour and we learned a lot about Marietta History. It was so educational and kind of spooky too....I would like to go back and learn more about the people of long ago buried here.

We do not have any relatives in this cemetery but we visit from time to time to take notice of what some Americans have done for this country. We exercise a lot of courtesy here and don't go there for exercise, but we do walk among (not directly over) the graves at times which is essential to reach certain graves in some cemeteries.

It has been a peaceful place for us to walk.

It is a respectful and sobering tribute to the fallen. Well kept with a good record of the fallen. Worth the time

I have been to many National Cemeteries. They are all beautiful in their own way. This one has some cool designs. I always feel very appreciative and thankful when ever I visit here. It is a reminder that so many sacrificed to serve our country.

This is an interesting place to visit with its actual Civil War cannon and Civil War graves. It is nicely kept with Confederate flags on the gravestones. Highly recommended for any students of history or anyone with an interest in the Civil War.

You can self tour this hallowed ground. All real American heros here. They would stand for the flag if they could.

History buffs will enjoy their walk through the very well kept National Cemetery. It is an easy walk from the Marietta Square (about 5 blocks). Well worth visiting, quiet, serene.
