This is a quiet little town but there is a small airport a few miles away but it does not receive large plans.

The closet hospital for the residents of Marvin is Carolina's Medical Center of Waxhaw. It is part of a large healthcare system and has good doctors but most major illnesses and injuries are cared for in Charlotte.The nicest place to visit it the nice park on the campus of Marvin Elementary School, Hunter Farm is just down the road in Weddington, and any community clubhouse pool in this town just take your pick.
General comments   
Marvin is the town of gated communities, pools, and large homes. The residents are nice and friendly but if you are not as privileged as the residents in Marvin you might feel out of place. The residents are busy going about their lives so do not get offended if you do not get a long conversation from a local when you bump into them at the market. Even though you may not get a long conversation you will get a smile.
