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!
Marion county is a great place to live ive lived here all my life and I hsve never had any problems. I think Marion country could redo roads because some are reallt bad but other than that everything is great!
