About Us

Getting away is all about experiencing new places at a pace that lets you relax. Whether it is enjoying a glass of wine and a sunset, sharing laughs with friends at a local dining favorite, or standing in the spot a president made famous, come visit us in Marion this year. Spring weekends are a delight on our many walking/biking trails as you see mother nature come to life. Summer sizzles with old-fashioned root beer floats, vista-like tee shots, and music in the air. Fall is popping with the largest popcorn festival in the country, live performances in our historic theatre, and a celebration of the all-American apple. Winter is the perfect time to visit and enjoy the lights and festivities of the season, a toy and train show that makes us all a kid again, and more live performances on stage. Whenever you visit, plan on a few stops along our new Eaterarian Trail—a collection of local eateries that are known for their savory offerings and welcoming atmosphere.
