The fountain itself was cool, but this location seemed to be the designated gathering spot in downtown Cincinnati. Every day we were in town, something different was going on at Fountain Square. There were also some restaurants and shops around the square, but we didn't visit any of them. Check it out if you're in town, but you probably won't... More

We took a midday break, & lucky for us, we saw the Cincy Reds win. In the evening, there was a music event that was a full house. Great location!

Back in the day, there wasn't much to do in Fountain Square, but now there are restaurants, clubs and outdoor activities. Don't forget to stop by Graeter's Ice Cream for some AMAZING deserts.

Just got back from business trip to Cincinnati. As I was staying at the Cincinnatian, Fountain Square became a great place to stretch my legs. The area was clean and quite pretty. Packed with restaurants and shops, there is plenty to keep you occupied. As I am from New York I am no stranger to panhandlers but the week I... More

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
