Come visit us in Marion...

to enjoy a glass of wine and a sunset, share laughs with friends at a local dining favorite, or stand in the spot a president made famous. 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 of the season or a toy and train show that makes us all a kid again.

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.
