I thoroughly enjoyed living in Marion County. There is a lot of diversity and a lot to do for young adults and families as well. I recently moved back to my small home town, but we will be returning in the next few years to the area because we miss it that much!
I've lived here my whole life and in all honesty, the community has had its ups and downs. There is lots of crime that happens here but there is also lots of positivity and kindness that many people radiate in this area.
