Last, but not least, don’t forget about all the picture perfect fun that you and your girls can have. After you’ve seen a show, eaten some food and did a little bit of shopping, why not take turns taking pictures of all of you with all the beautiful sites of the Square. 

Look for flower gardens, statues or just fun artwork that you might find sprinkled about. Every good Girls Night Out needs to have some awesome pictures to look back on as proof that it really did happen! (or…maybe, just maybe, what happens at the square in Marietta stays at the square in Marietta…)
