Downtown Marion & Changes!


We're not Killington, Vermont or Vail, Colorado. We're Blue Ridge mountain communities, including the ever changing face of Main Street and downtown Marion, NC.  

Spillway Bridge & Company is slated to open December 7th.  Pictured here, this new music hall, tap room and bourbon bar promises to become one of your favorite vacation stops.  Hungry?  Stop by their next door neighbors at Crabby Abby's Bar and Grill to grab a snack or dinner, or a take out to enjoy on Spillway's outdoor deck!

Walk a couple of blocks north and drop by Refinery 13, a taproom and local venue hosting Tuesday Trivia Night, specialty craft events and "SimSaturday" where you can try out the latest racing simulator created by local business partners, Turtle Laboratories!  Need a little snack?  Their neighbor, the Burrito Brothers, are open for lunch and dinner, where dining outside is another option!

Well, that's a peak at what's coming to downtown Marion.  Stay tuned, there is more!
