Came here after reading the history of this bridge. Remarkable history and achievement during that time. Even thought it was firstly consider as a pedestrian bridge. Now it's a vehicle bridge. Very unique and beautiful.

An over looked highlight to the Cincinnati Skyline and Downtown atmosphere. Some much history form the very famous family of architects and builders. They should build one in NYC! Oh they did.....

The walk along this bridge could be considered a little scary for children or people afraid of heights. It is a nice, pleasant walk for those who don't mind heights.

We walked across the bridge from Newport to Cincinnati. There was a nice breeze and the views were so beautiful as you looked to both sides on the bridge and beyond.

Designed by the same bridge builder who later built the Brooklyn Bridge. Great views of the city, including the stadiums and downtown from the bridge. Takes about 15 minutes to walk across.

The predecessor to the Brooklyn Bridge. Historic, visually stunning, this suspension bridge is going strong, in daily use, after almost 151 years. A testament to the technology of long ago.

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.

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
