A peaceful place to take a break. There are nice little tables around to take a lunch or to read a book. It is also a great place for people watching.

Make sure you visit this fountain during the day and at night. It is beautiful at anytime of day. Fountain square is a nice place to take a break out of a busy day of sightseeing.

It is always enjoyable to sit at Fountain Square in Cincinnati on a nice summers evening while listening to music being performed. We enjoyed our time relaxing there and watching the people go by.

We were on the fountain square on spare time and we had a great time watching soccer with an interesting crowd, even if it was in the early afternoon!

An impressive fountain is the heart of this open space. Literally the colors are dark but the vibe is cool. We walked by on a Friday evening to an indie music festival. It was a vibrant, happening place. The area appears safe and is conveniently located to several hotels. It is a few blocks walk from the riverfront. Worth the... More

This place is really active since the renovation a few years ago. Something is always happening at the city's living room. Many festivals are held here as well as celebrations.

We had a great time listening to the Salsa band and watching the Salsa dancers swing in the square. The square was clean and I felt very safe. We walked from our hotel.

I've been very impressed by the quality of the bands I have heard here. The reggae band was good, the salsa night was a lot of fun too. There are always great moments to see, and it feels very safe. Wish Atlanta had something like this!

Yes, the fountain direction was changed years back but it is still a beautiful work of art in the center of downtown.

Fountain Sq is certainly a wonderful place to watch people. There are places to eat all around & they have a big screen to watch the baseball & football games. Winter time is nice with the skating. A must see on a visit to Cincy
