I only had the pleasure of driving over this bridge, which I recommend you do at least once if you're in the area. The bridge has amazing history, and is worth a visit. I'm sure the bridge would be even more impressive if you walked...More

A must while in Cincy - spend the time to walk across the bridge into Covington KY. Great views of Cincy and the Great American Ball Park and park on the river. It takes about 10 mins to walk across.

I walk this bridge regularly. It spans the Ohio River connecting Covington, KY., with Cincinnati, OH. Beautifully lit at night, and sky blue during the day. The bridge's road surface is see through. Steel grating makes car tires "sing". Hence, many local folks call the...More

Finally got to walk from Ohio to Kentucky via the Roebling Suspension Bridge. What a great way to spend an hour outdoors. Grab the kids, turn off the screens and get going - now!

Excellent walking idea. If you're staying in Covington, rather than Cincinnati, it is ideal for meeting in downtown and either walking or grabbing public transportation. We walked one side of the bridge north and the other south, excellent photo ops!

The Roebling Bridge was a treat. My wife and I are older adults yet the walk was very manageable because we stopped to watch the tug boats and barges pass underneath us. We had a beautiful day for the walk and we stopped at a...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

The bridge is approximately a half mile long from Newport Kentucky to Cincinnati. There is pedestrian access from either side as well as parking (metered or surface lot). It is a nice walk and is a pedestrian only bridge... More
