If you like people watching, this is an awesome place to go and hang out. There are benches and steps all around to sit and eat lunch on. During christmas time, there is a giant tree in the middle of the square. The lighting ceremony is a big deal to a lot of people.

There are also many events throughout the year that happen here, such as concerts and sand castle competitions. I once went to a skateboard competition here that was sponsored by an energy drink company. I was given enough energy drinks to last me a year. I didn't get a whole lot of sleep that year.
