Very beautiful bridge and it's blue. Find a spot to gaze at this masterpiece of 19th century engineering. With the birds swooping overhead, you won't be disappointed.

This is a Cincinnati icon. It is narrow but fun to drive over. The bridge does have a pedestrian path on each side for walkers, runners and bicycles.
