This is well worth a look at when you are in Cincinnati. Views are great and the structure is very interesting. When you cross over to Kentucky, there are some great views back of the Cincinnati skyline.

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.
