The city of Marion in northeastern South Carolina is the Marion County seat. It's also one of many local places named after Revolutionary War hero Francis Marion, and the community is steeped in history. The Marion Historic District was built in the 1800s and is on the National Register of Historic Places, and the storefronts and homes in this area make a beautiful backdrop for your on-leash exercise: Marion just begs to be explored on foot.
At the Green Street Park on the east side of Marion, you’ll find a short path through the athletic fields and a grove of trees, and a giant open field perfect for serious frolicking. Just down the street is Durant Cemetery, established in 1901, where you can get Spot a workout while exploring the community's history.
Nestled among the well-kept neighborhood to the northeast, Harmon Park is a nature preserve so leafy and peaceful that you might forget you’re still in town. Since there are no facilities available at Harmon, bring water for your pups. It gets hot down here!
With some convenient big-box shopping and dog-friendly fast food joints, Marion is an easy place to get comfortable. Your pups can join you at the Tractor Supply Store, where they also have a weekly vaccine clinic. The local animal hospital on US-76 offers comprehensive veterinary care.
