We came to Fountain Square to eat at a restaurant. We spent some time enjoying the fountain, because it was Salsa night. There was a great band playing, lots of families and couples sitting around enjoying the evening, and many people dancing. If I get back to Cincinnati, I will definitely return here. What a fun place!

We walked over to Fountain Square from our downtown hotel. The fountain is magnificent and the whole area is bustling with activity. The area is clean and the outdoor seating areas beg for you to "do lunch" outdoors on nice days. It is definitely worth a look!

We were fortunate to stay at the Westin just across from Fountain Square. Immediately upon arrival we headed to the Square and saw everyone looking back at our hotel. There were people rapelling down the Westin (a charity event) and that just set the tone. There was always something happening there and it was a nice place to hang out... More

Cincinnati has definitely upped it's game downtown. Fountain Square should be your go to destination if you're new to the area and looking for some free entertainment. This location has some kind of entertainment/programming going on almost every night of the week! Attractions include concerts, comedy shows, festivals and food trucks. Fountain Square is especially fun during winter time for... More

Super fun to visit this quaint spot in the center of downtown Cincinnati - whether for a Graeters ice cream in the summer, or just to people watch any time! During the winter season, you can even watch the outside ice skaters!

The square is located in downtown Cincinnati. The fountain is very picturesque and there are often free concerts in the square.

The fountain is moved again and with the stage set up it doesn't seem like it is the focal point that it was, but go! It's great to visit, hopefully check out a performance or just get an ice cream or a bite to eat and check out the local flavor...

Lunchtime on the Square is the best in people watching! The actual fountain is a magnificent sculpture that was highlighted in the 70's sitcom called "WKRP in Cincinnati". Pigeons are a bit of a problem, but the city continually works on it. When I lived in Cincinnati in the 80's, I loved commuting. The bus would drop off at Fountain... More
