“Needs something impressive”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We could do better. Average, so average. I know, limited space. Wasted all that money on the defunct "Skywalk". Soon to waste millions on the future defunct Trolley. Does that "Trolley" even get close to your new Casino? No? Get a grip on reality, Cincinnati!

“Pretty lights”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

There was a large open area, a stage, and a bunch of lights that changed color. Gorgeous area to check out!

“The heart of the business district”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

This public square holds all sorts of activity---open expos, demonstrations, bands, food fests. Check to see what is going on when you plan to visit. I found the history and symbolism of the fountain to be fascinating. The square is flanked by a Graeters for icecream and a great Italian restaurant sits in the middle of the square.

“New Years Eve Party Was Rocking”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

We stayed at the Hilton Downtown for New Years Eve. It was right across from Fountain Square and made for a fun night of partying. Went down and hung out before the countdown. The snow was falling, the music was blasting and drinks were flowing. There was snowflake shaped lights shining up on the buildings, and other lights made for a really neat atmosphere. After the countdown, there were fireworks for 15 minutes if not longer. Lots of bars and resturants around so plenty to eat and drink. Not sure if I would bring kids, but it was a very fun night.

“Center of Downtown”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 7, 2013

This is the place to start off the a visit. I always bring visitors here first for the start of the day in Cincinnati. Skate in the winter and drink in the summer. Just a good place to hang out and poeple watch.
