“Another great Landmark for Cincinnati.”
Reviewed 24 March 2012

If there is something of importance going on in Cincinnati it probably will start here. Whether it is the "Taste of Cincinnati." Or the "Flying Pig Marathon, Or the Middle of Oktoberfest. Great place for photography but do keep your head on a swivel because the pick pockets do like the tourist. Another place for people that are looking for handouts or for protestors to do their thing. Just be cognizant. There are places to eat at here and shops to do shopping. Daytime is fine to come but night time...not so much. During the winter months there is ice skating available.

“The center of Cincinnati!”
Reviewed 24 March 2012

Not much to do here, but enjoy city life in Cincinnati. The Tyler Davidson Fountain is beautiful and there's nothing like the sound of it in the background as you eat a Cincinnati bratwurst with sauerkraut on a warm summers day. It's a great place to people watch too! There's a Graeter's Ice Cream right off the square, so dessert is right at hand.
In the winter, there's a huge Christmas tree and an ice skating rink. The fountain is adorned in little white lights and makes for a wonderful background for winter photos!

They were playing a movie on the big screen TV and people were everywhere enjoying it. It was great to see people and families out enjoying life.

“The heart of the city!”
Reviewed 9 March 2012

No visit to Cincinnati is complete without visiting Fountain Square. It is truly the heart of the city. Great people watching, frequent interesting events, lots of places to eat, safe, few annoying street people, easy access and parking and wonderful fountain centerpiece.
