Cultural Corridor

  • Marion Cultural Corridor

    While there are many things to see and do throughout Marion County, the core of the city of Marion has recently undergone a transformation as local entrepreneurs are turning the area into the newest social destination for locals and visitors. Known as the Cultural Corridor, the East/West strip encompasses almost two miles of museums, performances spaces, restaurants, shops, and artisans to create a diversity of experiences that will have you returning again and again.

     

    And, to help you navigate the many places to visit, pick up a copy of the Cultural Corridor Map at the Visitors Center, Chamber of Commerce or any of the sites within the Corridor. Or, just download the PDF version for your mobile device.
