Great place in the center of downtown Charleston to relax with a Starbucks Coffee in the shade and enjoy people watching.

Just walked thru this square. Not much going on the day I hit it, but was nice to be able to get out and stretch my legs.

Our hotel was right across from Marion Square, so we could take advantage of this wonderful venue every day. It's very pretty, and offered some great activities to boot. The farmer's market is there, and we also got to see some artist booths during Spoleto.

We went through here during the week when the park was filled with happy, fun-loving college students. Beautiful day. We then went through here on the following Sunday when every park bench was filled with someone (not college students) sleeping and/or passed out. Not a...More

As far as the layout of Charleston goes, Marion Square is actually in the northern half of the peninsula. But to me, it feels absolutely in the middle of the city. And of course, the Saturday morning food market that takes place there from April...More

Trying to find a place to eat our Callie’s biscuit we thought we’d try Marion square. It’s a beautiful sunny morning, but the place is littered and we can’t seem to find a bench. Several homeless still asleep.
