Marvin is a great community for individuals who want their kids to be given a great education. All of the schools in Marvin have amazing teachers who create a fantastic learning environment. One factor I would change about Marvin is its diversity. Most of the individuals in the Marvin suburb are primarily of the Caucasian race. I would love to see more races present in Marvin, so individusls could be exposed to other cultures, which would enhance their knowledge of the world.

Marvin is a good, homey town. It has beautiful neighborhoods and is a part of a great school cluster (Marvin Ridge). However, it has very little to offer in terms of recreation with basically nothing.
I was born and raised in Marvin, North Carolina. It's a very rich community with war history. However, the thing I don't really like is that it is in the middle of nowhere. There isn't much to do, and you always have to drive somewhere to do something. It's a good neighborhood to raise a family in, but not good for doing fun stuff with said family.
