I loved this old bridge built in 1850 or so, and twice walked across it to the Kentucky side. One can see river boats making their way upstream and watch ducks and geese floating in the water in Kentucky. There appear to be two old...More

Used this bridge a number of times to get from our hotel in Covington into town. A nice walk over the river. Learned about its' history from signs on the bridge during our walk. Pretty interesting. Nice views as well.

This is a nice bridge located in Cincinnati Ohio. I like old historic structures like this. The structure looks old and you can go over it. This is a really nice bridge

The bridge is a beautiful piece of architecture and awe inspiring to see. We drove over it as we left Cincinnati, but took pictures as we walked to The Great American Ball Park.

The suspension bridge is a really pretty piece of architecture. Walking across is cool, because you can go from Covington, KY to Cincinnati, OH relatively easily. The view of this all lit up at night is the best part.

The Roebling Suspension bridge is a source of pride for Cincinnati. Sure, the Brooklyn Bridge is bigger and much more popular but ours is older! It is convenient to walk or drive.

While the parking is more challenging on Cincinnati's side the are garages or lots right off Pete Rose Way with the bridge in between. Sometimes, depending on the day you can sneak over and park on the tarmac at Paul Brown... More
