Review of Marianna, Florida

Great Place to live if...
Star Rating - 9/9/2008
... you like heat, humidity, swamps, mosquitos and fleas, and an uneducated population. The schools are awful, awful, awful and there is nothing here. No real "town" - it's all out by the interstate and it's just one chain store after the other. It's 70 miles to Tallahasse, 50 miles to Panama City and 35 miles to Dothan. Be prepared to drive if you want any quality of life at all. Oh, yeah, get religion before you get here (the Baptist kind is preferred) or you won't get invited to anything. We got transferred here by my husband's job with the federal prison system and after 14 months, I fled with the kids and my husband got transferred as soon as he could. This is the most abysmal place we've ever had to endure.

May I ask you to be mindful that this is the beloved hometown of thousands of people, just like me. I can testify that this town is filled to the brim with some of the kindest people you could ever want to meet. The people of Marianna, Florida and the surrounding areas are near and dear to my heart, as they are to many who live/have lived here. I have seen acts of unsurmounting love and kindness extend to complete strangers in this rural area just because it is who/want this town stands for as collective.
