Visit Marion!

The growing hub of the East Arkansas Delta, Marion’s skyrocketing rise from 4,400 to 10,500 people in 15 years proves its lifestyle is an attractive one.

But it’s also a great headquarters for a visit, with all of Memphis’ attractions just a 10-minute jaunt across the Mississippi River.

It’s a calm and comfortable oasis from the Memphis hubbub, yet still close enough to come back and change clothes after a day of shopping or touring before a night on the town on Beale Street.

And check out these Marion pluses…

  • Located on the Great River Road National Scenic Byway.
  • Great fishing for bass and panfish in river chutes and nearby lakes.
  • Mississippi Flyway duck hunting.
  • Championship-caliber golf at the Marion Golf and Athletic Club.
  • Weekends filled with top-ranked baseball and softball tournaments at the area’s top recreation complex.
  • Esperanza Bonanza Festival, every first weekend in May, with barbecue, crawfish, live music, a carnival and lots of other activities.
  • Christmas on the Square — Annual community festival featuring a parade, Santa’s arrival in an antique fire truck, a Christmas tree forest and caroling with a community choir.
  • A sense of history — Site where the steamship Sultana exploded and sank in 1865, killing more than 1,800 homebound union ex-prisoners of war in what is still the largest peacetime maritime disaster in the world.
  • Crittenden County Courthouse, Marion Hotel and old Citizens Bank are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
