Love that place....old English pub that has tons of charm! Can't wait to go back! Drinks are great and waiters are very attentive. Sat on the deck and enjoyed the awesome Art in the Alley!

Marion's shop on and around 7th Avenue are a fun way to spend an afternoon. Meet a friend for lunch, then stroll through the numerous shops. There is a nice variety to meet every need and interest.

A wonderful place for the summer concert series. The arts festaval is amazing. Nice picnic spot. The shopping near is good for Zoe's pizza, coffee shops, or antiques.

For some reason, the local Chamber of Commerce calls downtown Marion "uptown". It's "up" from Cedar Rapids, but that would make it "Uptown Cedar Rapids". And it's not "up-scale" -- in fact, if Marion has an "up-scale" area, it is as far away from "uptown"...More

People gather in the park to listen to local music from different styles. Sometimes there are food vendors, pop machines, resturants, and Walgreen nearby.
