    Walk around the square to find something good to eat, cool to buy or fresh to drink, and don't miss the St. Patricks 5k.

    Several buildings sat on this site since the 1700s. The last, a parking garage, was removed in the early 2000s. Take advantage of the new parking underneath.

    When the City Market restaurants are crowded, grab some pizza slices from Vinnie Van GoGo's and eat in the Square. Perfect picnic!

    One of four original squares laid out in 1733. It was often called the Marketplace Square, but was actually named in honor of Henry Ellis, Georgia's 2nd Royal Governor. See the new water works!
