I was in town for business and staying at the nearby Hilton. I was surprised that Fountain Square was so close, so I wandered over twice: once at lunchtime and once after dinner. They were having a Latin band performing in the evening and people were enjoying dancing and socializing. I probably wouldn't have known what this place was if it wasn't for the opening credits from "WKRP in Cincinnati" but I was glad I stopped by.

Iconic spot in Downtown Cincinnati. Symbolic center of the city since 1871. It looks and sounds like it could be a great place to hang out, but you need to catch it at the right time and day. I visited on a Saturday early afternoon in July after it had been raining earlier in the day. The rain had stopped but it was deserted as was much of downtown Cincinnati. I assume it is very different if a sporting event is going on downtown or if there is music playing at night or if the sun is out and shining. I will look forward to experiencing it again some time under the right conditions.

We decided to check out downtown after business hours and found the Fountain Square alive with salsa music and dancers! It was wonderful! There were people of all ages there having a wonderful time. We found out that there is something (free) happening almost every night on Fountain Square. 100% worth checking out!

The square itself is relatively small, so there isn't room for much. There were some small tables set out with umbrellas along the south side of the square. There were 2 food trucks parked along the street, one selling Mexican food. I chose to get an order of Mexican street corn, which was decent. It was a workday and it past the regular lunch time when I was there, so maybe that's why it was fairly quiet without much going on. The fountain is pretty, but there isn't much to do except spend a few minutes walking around it.

Lots of great events and you can't beat the prices! The event planners should be commended. The bar is reasonably priced as well.

We stayed at the Marriott right next to Fountain Square, and our room overlooked the Square. A couple of nights during our stay there was free live music in Fountain Square, which was really nice! There aren't very many places in the area that serve food after, say, 3:00 pm, which was kind of inconvenient. Walking distance to the Taft Theatre, and we felt completely safe the entire time.
