Neat old bridge. Provides great views of city. Also serves as a cool backdrop for photo ops. Also, on the Covington side of the river there is a neat collection of levy-wall art at the base of the bridge that is well worth the hike.

There are three separate bridges that cross the Ohio River in midtown Cincinnati - but the Roebling Bridge takes the honors for beauty and grace in my opinion. Standing on the KY side of the river and shooting back across one can capture the night skyline of the Cincinnati, wonderful reflections in the water, and both of the ball parks.... More

There is a lot of activity around here! You can walk across the bridge to Cincinnati or on the walkway around the murals - it's an active area of people exercising and you can see the riverboats as well.

A beautiful part of our region's history. This was the model that John Roebling first built and which the Brooklyn Bridge is based on. The natives of this area also refer to it as the Singing Bridge because the grated surface hums when you drive over it.

I was amazed to see this bridge in Cincinnati. It looks like a small version of the iconic Brooklyn Bridge in NY. It is beautiful with it's blue cables.

This Bridge is the forerunner of the Brooklyn Bridge and a wonderful way to walk between Cincinnati and Covington, even though the bridge hums a bit under the weight of traffic.

Called Roebling's model for the Brooklyn Bridge, this,Cincy landmark connects downtown to the heart of Covington, KY. This historic Cincinnati landmark literally hums as you drive over the open metal grate that forms the decking. Don't freak out if it is raining, you will shimmy just a little! Don't miss it.

Being from Cincinnati this is an area landmark that I adore. I have a memory of first going over when I about eight and Dad stopping and opening the door so we could look down through the open bridge work to see the river below us. It gave me shivers. It got the nickname "the Singing Bridge" due to the... More

Definitely a pretty bridge. On the Ohio side, you can enjoy parks, playgrounds, fountains, bike rentals, the Freedom Center, the Reds, the Bengals, restaurants, and bars, just feet away. On the Kentucky side, you can visit the neighborhoods, or take about a mile walk to Newport on the Levee. It's beautiful when lit up at night.
