Yes, Fountain Square does have history. Sure, the fountain itself is beautiful and I heard there's ice skating in the winter. And to be fair, there are random concerts and things that do pop up frequently enough that (I believe) generally are free.
But there's really not enough here to really be labelled an attraction. Definitely a place to stop and look for a bit if you're traversing the city exploring, or happen to be passing by, but as far as being a tourist goes I would recommend going to the Museum Center or one of our lovely parks.
Nothing bad to say, just nothing glowing either.
Well, I will say one nice thing: I like the layout of the area. Nice and open, lined with restaurants of varying levels of expense.
OH and they have very nice public bathrooms. I always find that to be highly important.
