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.

I love living in North Carolina, it's beautiful, and my allergies are a lot better in this state. I moved from Livonia, Michigan back in November 2005.
A little hot in the summer, but overall the weather is great!
