What Renters Like and Dislike About Marion

I friends close and down the street the stores less than 1 mile awayand gas station is closethe dog track is close by

It is quiet and peaceful. Shopping is convenient. It is not too far from a major city. Neighbors are friendly.

I like going to the park, even though I have to drive to it. I like the fact that there are kids in the neighborhood for my child to play with.

It is a quiet neighborhood. Neighbors seem friendly. It is located near stores that I normally shop at. Also close to a larger city.

Everyone waves, or honks when passing by. A lot people walk the neighborhood and will stop and talk and make sure you are doing good.
