I love the area. Do not have any kids in school yet as they are not old enough. P.s. I maybe biased, I live in Marion. :-)

I seriously like the town, not sure why, I just want to move there, more opportunities for me and things for me to do with my son.

Grr...I typed up my reply and don't know where it went! Anyway...lol.  For me, I think that it is the small town feel. I also like that there is adequate cop coverage and that they don't take any crap. Lol. I feel safe. I also like that Marion is a pretty active community, it makes me want to do more. There are people running/walking/biking rain or shine day or night. Everyone is friendly and welcoming. It really is a great place. How old is your son? My daughter starts preschool in August. :-)

Lol! You really will like it here, if you decide to move here that is. :-D My nephew goes to Indian Creek Elementary here in Marion and he loves it! This is his first year there (he previously was in the Cedar Rapids school system).  His Mom has nothing but good things to say about it too! :-)
