it's a cool bridge from below/under it - it sounds cool, looks pretty but the drive is terrifying - you don't ever feel like you have a good hold on your car

The Roebling Bridge is Cincinnati. The older sister to the Brooklyn Bridge is just as lovely as the first time I ever saw it. Great for nighttime photos!

You can walk across the Ohio river to Kentucky on this beautiful bridge from the heart of downtown. If you have the slightest interest in bridge architecture you should not pass this up.

There is a public parking area behind Molly Malone's restaurant just up the street from the Covington end of the bridge. It is filled on weekdays from 9-5...but in the evenings or weekends there is plenty of parking.
