My wife and I arrived at our hotel midnight but walked to Fountain Square to see the Christmas scene. The live Christmas tree was very big and beautiful. The skating rink was closed when we arrived. The fountain and the light in the background painted a magical winter city scene. Would definitely like to visit again.

This square is in the center of downtown Cincinnati. There are many restaurants within walking distance. It has a large fountain that runs during the warm months. In the winter it has ice skating. There is also a music stage.

The Tyler Davidson Fountain or "Fountain Square" is the perfect place to be at in downtown. They have shops, restraunts, and during winter an ice skating rink. The fountain is a great meeting place and it is right in the heart of the up and coming Downtown Cincinnati. I love it down here.

Fountain Square is the heart and soul of the city. So many wonderful events are held here. Currently the ice skating rink and beautiful tree and lights make this a wonderful place for families to gather and bring out-of-town guests to show off this beautiful city. Fountain Square is within walking distance of the stadiums and the Banks-another great place... More

Concerts, fireworks, ice skating, Christmas tree lighting, Oktoberfest (best one in the USA), and fish-tossing: There's always something going on here. Definitely worth a stop when you are in Cincinnati. It is a very pleasant public space. Grab a beer or an ice cream cone and hang out. You'll be glad you did!

Have visited this many times. Since the renovation it is very beautiful. Love the new square. I visited the square with the YMCA for a health fair., It was very informative and we enjoyed the day very much.
