I think the downtown area of market is very nice! You don't have to pay for parking right on the main streets and there is a parking ramp a block over along with street parking not far from Washington and Front Streets. There is a nice variety of shops and restaurants all within walking distance of where you park. Be... More

Very nice little downtown area with restaurants, bars, souvenir stores, clothing shops, movie theatre, bars, etc. Just a few mins walk away from Lake Superior!

I'm biased, I live here. There is much to do from great unique eateries, biking, hiking, sailing, theater. Great medical facilities, solid D2 university and an environment you can feel safe in.

I live in Escanaba but went to DownTown Eye Care in Marquette because they had weekend and evening hours. Now I will drive the hour because it is worth it! Dr. Baumgartner is Wonderful! It is the most complete eye exam I have ever had and when I went to pick up my glasses, the girl that fitted them was... More

I visited Marquette for the first time the other day and I must say that I thought that their business district / downtown area seemed lively enough--but perhaps a little TOO lively since finding a place to park was a challenge. Street parking spots were all full. Then I found and drove through a parking deck but all of the... More

The downtown shops are interesting worth an afternoon of you time. Wont spend too long because there is only a city block worth of stores to go through.

Walked around town. Very walkable, great diversity, family friendly. Very few empty storefronts. Nice to see a busy downtown.

So, you've likely heard reference to "Uppers". And this connotation of a warm, friendly, good natured and laid-back group is what you'll find with your visit to Marquette. Expect to be warmly welcomed by the proprietors of the restaurants, shops, and citizenry. Marquette is a beautiful town along lake Superior with dining and shopping for all. And when you wish...

Whenever we are in Marquette we stop at Getz's to peruse the clearance section and almost always find something we can't pass up. This time it was a stormy kromer hat for 60% off. Amazing.
