I've lived within 10 miles of Marion for most of my life and I've worked in MArion for the last five and a half years. I am in MArion at least once a day- but I still get confused on which street to turn on to get to the square... I guess I don't know it as well as I think. There are a lot of fun places to hang out in Marion, though. One of them is not the mall... it sucks- Dillard's and Target are the only mentionable stores.
Favorite spots in Marion:
The Bowling Alley
Tower Square Pub
Just One More
Ok- so they're all bars - or restraunt bars or bowling alley bars- but if you go to any of these places you will have a great time!
Oh- and Marion is dry on Sundays and doesn't serve alcohol after midnight- if you want to know where to go after the fun stos in MArion- check out my Herrin pages when I get them up...
Applebee's Crew- well some of us @ Tower Square. We have a lot of fun together....
