Fabulous walk across the forerunner of the Brooklyn Bridge designed by the same engineer. This 1865 bridge has wide walking paths and large areas to stop and watch Ohio River traffic. Also photographers can set up cameras for spectacular views of downtown Cincinnati. Not many...More

Beautiful bridge and offers a great photo opportunity. Not a whole lot to see but I'd go out of my way to check it out.

The man who gave us the Brooklyn Bridge also designed this: John A Roebling. It's a must to see in Cincinnati - see it from the riverfront park below, and then drive across to Covington KY

Park or stay in Kentucky for cheaper hotels and parking. Walk the bridge for free with very easy access to Bengals, Reds, Smale Park and the rest of downtown Cincinnati. It is very similar to the Brooklyn Bridge too.

We did not get to drive over it but we did view and photograph it from both the Ohio and Kentucky sides of the Ohio River. This is a classic design. It's reminiscent of the Brooklyn Bridge and some of the bridges in London, UK....More

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
