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.
