“Historic statue/fountain in Cincinnati”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

The square and surrounding area is worth the visit. Bring your camera. Be forewarned: parking can be a problem. While you're there hit one of the street food vendors for a Mett...a Cincinnati tradition. But don't hit a Chili Parlor!!!

“Downtown Landmark”
Reviewed September 12, 2013

A relaxing place with a bit of shade, this served primarily as a landmark location marker for me since it was close to my hotel.

One afternoon the square was pretty full since various vendors were selling wares. Otherwise, there wasn't a lot of activity going on. It's worth pausing here for relaxation, for a central meeting place, or for getting a few photo shots.

The fountain at night is gorgeous! The music variety, energy of the people and people watching is so fun. Stores are open on the square---very nice place to visit!

“Wonderful”
Reviewed September 4, 2013

I was visiting Cincy during the annual food festival in May and downtown was hoping! There was music in the square, people dancing and food vendors everywhere!! It's a wonderful area to sit, eat and people watch!

“Nice Place to Relax”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

Great place when the weather is nice. Unfortunately, a lot of homeless folks are asking for money around the square.
