Yes this square draws many tourists and events throughout the year. If visiting is is necessary to see. Some events at the square or downtown area are attracted bus loads of tourists from other parts of arizona or travels between here and the Grand Canyon.

Only saw a little bit of historic downtown, lots of bars, some shops and art galleries. Found a place to eat Limoncello's on side street. Fun Italian food, homemade everything.

The Courthouse is the center of downtown and center stage for many activities, e.g. arts and crafts show, many restaurants and the historic Hassayampa Inn is close by.
