Reach Higher. Achieve More.

Marion is one of the Midwest’s fastest growing cities – and one of the youngest per capita. We pride ourselves on being the best place in Iowa to raise a family and grow a business.

Whether you enjoy music in the City Square on a warm summer night, Christmas in the Park in December, the nationally-acclaimed Marion Arts Festival in the spring, or walking the trails on a crisp fall morning, it's no wonder Marion was named one of the 10 Best Towns for Families by Family Circle magazine.

This is a place where people work smarter, set lofty goals and strive to achieve the very best for their families and community. Here, we reach higher!

Marion is home to two exceptional school districts, Marion Independent and Linn-Mar Community School District.
