Some shaded spots on the south side of the square make for a nice respite from the blazing sun. There's a Holocaust memorial too, and I didn't get to go but there's a farmer's market on the weekends.

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.

I visited during Spoleto Festival and Marion Square was busy with the farmers market and art festival. It was a great outdoor venue for this, and it was easy to spread out and enjoy the park.
