so here’s the deal…you might be thinking, “a blog about the cool & fun things to do in marion? this should be short.” and maybe it will be. it’s an experiment. however, we think that there actually ARE cool & fun things to do…it may just take a little looking, an open mind and a little creativity. now we’re no scientists, but we are definitely ready to put our theory to the test.

we are setting out this summer to prove that there are things that those of us in our 20s, 30s & 40s would want to do right here in the 43302. we are on the search for all things food-, drink-, music-, art-, culture-, and fun-related. we realize that these are things that one might not typically think of as being very “marionish,” but we are pretty sure they exist. and once we find them, we want to tell you!

your next thought may be, “who are these girls, and why do they care?” well, we are kelsey and cara stevens and we are sisters that happen to live right here in marion, ohio. that’s who we are, and that is why we care. we are using any free time that we have this summer to get up off the couch and go out on the town. we are sharing our experiences with you because, quite frankly, we are sick of hearing you and ourselves complain about there being nothing to do around “these parts”. it’s time to stop just sitting around talking about it, and time to get up and do something about it.

one of the great things is that it actually does take a bit of looking around – exploring and adventuring is what we like to call it – but there are things to do. free things. fun things. kid things. adult things. things. everywhere. dr. suess could write a book about this town. we hope that you follow us on our pursuits to put marion on the map. there is a “marionish” side to all of us that know this place as home, and it’s time to get out there and show it.
