On Saturday morning the square has quite a few food and craft vendors. Marion Square is centrally located on the penninsula.

We visited Marion Square in December so it was decked out in Christmas lights. It looked very lovely - even the palmetto trees were decorated. It's quite a big park on King Street, with a nice fountain and places to sit. It's a good place to rest from shopping on King st. and possibly watch some break dancers do their... More

It is next to our hotel so we walked there a few times during the daytime and night. The Xmas lighting was beautiful. It was very warm during our stay so there were a lot of people performing in the park. Interesting place.

The Square was decorated for Christmas with a large tree in the center and all kinds of smaller trees around the park and perimeter. Enjoyed the Farmers Market on Saturday. Do not go near at night as there are many homeless people there. Do not give them... More
