If you’re a local who still has some exploring to do, why not take a day off and plan a long weekend packed with fun! Treat your taste buds to some new cuisine, indulge in some self-care at a local spa or salon, discover hidden history at the Marion County Historical Society or explore the outdoors at Valley Falls State Park or one of our many rail trails. Make it a real vacation and book an overnight stay at a local hotel to enjoy all the amenities they have to offer!

Romantic Retreats

Relax and unwind on a retreat for just the two of you. Cozy up in a quaint bed & breakfast, melt stress away during a couples massage at Tuscan Sun Spa and Salon or a float therapy session at Spa Oasis, enjoy locally made craft beer and wine and delight in authentic Italian restaurants serving up traditional family recipes.

Family Getaways

Marion County is the perfect place for families! Compete for a hole-in-one at Coal Country Mini Golf then demolish ginormous ice cream sundaes and other diner food at The Poky Dot. In summer, visit the splash pad at Palatine Park or the wave pool at East Marion Veterans Memorial Park. For an educational experience, the kids will never forget, visit Pricketts Fort State Park for an immersive look at the pioneer age.
