That's my favorite time to visit Public Square, when it turns into Winter Wonderland! All the trees wrapped up in lights, and the buildings glowing with Christmas colors... pure magic!

We were on a walking tour and happened across this place. It was very nice and surprised us with history and water fountains kids were playing in. Historical monuments, people eating lunch, some places to sit. Good stop, some neat building around it.
