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.

I stayed in Covington and walked across this bridge to business meeting in downtown Cincinnati. It has an interesting history (related to Brooklyn Bridge) and the walk itself is scenic, offering great views of the city.

Traveling through Ohio, always love crossing a big bridge. Especially one than spans across a river. The mighty Ohio is a spectacular river and has great access.

This beauty is a jewel. I love that our offices overlook the bridge and that I cross it every day. The bridge has a great history. It is worth a look

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
