Cobb County   Minimize

Long regarded as one of the best places to reside in metro Atlanta, Cobb County captures the best of both worlds with its blossoming businesses, neighborhoods and eateries just beyond the I-285 Perimeter. Providing easy access to recreation and entertainment opportunities, as well as a stellar education system, Cobb is more than a thriving commercial and residential area. It’s a great place to visit.

Some of the Southeast’s largest amusement parks, including Six Flags Over Georgia, Six Flags White Water and Mountasia Marietta Family Fun Center add to Cobb’s exciting allure year-round. The county also offers multiple options in terms of public parks, golf courses, museums, galleries, theaters and shops.

Major employers in the area include the Cobb County School System, Lockheed Martin Aeronautics Company and WellStar Health System, as well as hundreds of other businesses, including 200 international firms. The “Platinum Triangle” features 20 million square feet of urban office space at the intersection of I-75 and I-285, and several businesses have established a strong base in burgeoning Vinings and Smyrna.

Education prospers under the leadership of two distinct school systems—Cobb County and Marietta City School districts. As the second-largest school district in the state and the 24th largest in the country, the Cobb County School District consists of 112 elementary, middle and high schools and has been honored with a variety of awards, including Georgia School of Excellence and Blue Ribbon School designations. Cobb also houses numerous private, specialized and alternative schools, as well as higher education opportunities at Chattahoochee Technical College, Kennesaw State University, Life University and Southern Polytechnic State University. Marietta City’s smaller base of 11 schools is equally as impressive. The school system is among the small list of schools to offer the full International Baccalaureate (IB) continuum and is home to five Georgia Schools of Excellence and one National School of Excellence.
