“Holidays in Fountain Square are awesome!~”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

We always love the activities, shops and places to eat in Fountain Square, however the holidays ALWAYS kick it up a notch!~ Christmas time offers an ice skating rink, great food offerings, safe environment and walk down the street a little to the Duke Energy bidg to see the amazing train display...New Years bosts large screen TV right in the Square all the local food spots have great drinks and fun atmospheres and you can simply stroll back to your hotel from the large selection of nice hotels in that area and not drive home under the influence!~ At mid night the ball drops on the big screen and fireworks blast off from behind the big screen...it is a great way to ring in the New Year!~

“Nice and clean”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

The City has worked hard on cleaning and keeping the square clean. Me and my girls go to the square once a month for lunch and shopping. And at Christmas its something you should go and see. Fun for the hole family

“Great meeting place”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

Cincinnati's really trying to bring people back to the downtown area again and are doing a great job with the many varied activities provided there. There's something for everyone - young and old alike.

“Great family place”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The ice skating rink was open and the kids really had a great time. Although a lot of people were there, the rink was run efficiently so everyone could enjoy. Shopping in the area was also good.

“Skating at Fountain Square”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Yes, you can enjoy Fountain Square in summer, but we love it in winter. The Christmas decorations set the holiday mood. Our daughter loves ice skating on the generously sized rink with her cousins. Taking a carriage ride, shopping, eating, and staying warm with coffee or hot chocolate, and people watching are all part of the Fountain Square experience. The only down side is, as with any city, finding a parking space. But, it's worth the hassle to spend an afternoon or evening at the Square.
