The weather didn't help. The numerous panhandlers didn't either. Might be nice in the summer. Average restaurants surround it.

HAHA! I mean, I don't know how you can review a square. I guess it'll be reflective of the city itself, but... I'll try. The Statue in the middle is actually BREATHtaking. It's a gorgeous statue, and I would walk out of my way to where I was going just to see it. The square itself is a hub for... More

What a beautiful place to visit during the holiday season. The Christmas tree was all decorated and it really looked beautiful and stood out. There was an outdoor ice skating rink there as well. If you want to do the ice skating, you need to get there early. Plenty of food and shops around the square to keep you busy.

We were here in November for a cheer competition. Was an easy walk from either the convention center or Garfield Suites. Very cool Christmas scene. Ice skating, restaurants, the fountain, big screen jumbotron. Lots of homeless around but never felt uncomfortable. If ever in Cincinnati again, would definitely visit again.

A very enjoyable area although many homeless people frequent this area. Things have changed over the years a bit yet can be very nice during any season.
