Marumsco: A Great Coastal City

I've been living in Marumsco for a while now and really enjoy it so far. You're right across the river from the city so there are lots of opportunities for college and work, especially if you want to start a career in politics or government. The proximity of Washington makes the real estate prices pretty high though.

Getting around the city can be a little stressful because of how busy it can be, but if you take a bicycle to work or walk, it's not bad. The summers can be pretty hot, but Occoquan Bay National Wildlife Refuge is one of the best places in Marumsco and is a great place to visit when the weather is nice.

There's certainly enough to do in the city to keep you busy and entertained when you're not working. There are plenty of places to grab a coffee or a bite to eat, plus a bit shopping center, so the city has everything you'll need.
