seaside programs, such as boating, fishing and swimming, while Marion Recreation runs programs
for children throughout the summer. The Marion Art Center promotes the visual and performing
arts, offering year-round classes from fine art to theater.
Marion Center, along the waterfront, is scattered with gift and antique shops, boutiques, galleries,
