Marion, Mass.

by Eric H.

Geraldo Rivera has roots here, but we can safely say Marion, Mass., is nowhere near as flamboyant as the journalistic legend. As one of New England's quiet masterpieces -- and an underrated one at that -- Marion is near Cape Cod (or is part of Cape Cod, depending on who you talk with) and has some of New England's most impressive homes with white picket fences, a few stores including the great Marion Country Store, the famous Tabor Academy preparatory school and a laid-back scenic Cape Cod-style harbor. The antithesis of an outlet/strip mall vacation town, Marion has steadfastly held onto its Yankee feel, as seen in its understated approach to everyday life. People here like to walk, say a "hello," and enjoy the peacefulness of another era. Those living in Marion know their community is one of the best ways to live in New England.
