“Not much to see”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2012

Went there on a Sunday when nothing was happening downtown. It is a nice fountain, but the water was turned off due to the colder weather. Not worth a special trip.

“The Gathering”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2012

There is always something going on down there. I used to enjoy it until the panhandlers became a nuisance. I had my hand bag snatched there once. That was exciting.

“Nice central downtown location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

When we visited, it was during Octoberfest, and the Reds just won the pennant, so the place was going nuts.

“Inspiring Place”

All kinds of people to watch and chat with. Great place for out of town guests. Big TV screen is such a bonus!

“Interesting, and constantly surrounded by events”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Fountain Square is not only home to a beautiful and interesting fountain, but is the place in town where there are constantly events surrounding it. From the Taste of Cincinnati to the concerts and charity walks, there is always something going on here.
