Opening in 1866, the Roebling Suspension Bridge was the longest at the time, and it truly was a marvel! Still in use today in Cincinnati as both a pedestrian and vehicular bridge, it has become a recognizable part of the city's skyline.

Went back the next morning around 8am and was the only person there, except the homeless that seem to live in the parking lot. The... More

The Roebling Suspension bridge was cool. Below it is Scale Park which is a beautiful park on the Ohio River. At night the bridge is lit up.

I gained a greater appreciation for this impressive feat of engineering. It's hard to get a true feel for how a historic site might impact you. It wasn't until I was standing at the base of the bridge reading up on the history that I could truly appreciate this work of engineering. I walked across this bridge. It is definitely... More

Totally worth a visit to the "Queen City" just to be able to walk across the Ohio River on this architectural masterpiece, and the Cincinnati skyline is absolutely stunning. Travel to Devou Park in Covington KY, to photograph the skyline and the suspension bridge!

This structure was the longest bridge in the world when completed in the 1860's. Served as as the prototype for the younger Brooklyn Bridge by John Roebling's son. The bridge has been well maintained over the years and retains some of its original charm dispite the larger truss added int eh 1860 and the modern lighting and railings. Great walk... More

This bridge, built by the Roeblings of Trenton, New Jersey in the mid 19th century, was the prototype for the Brooklyn Bridge. It is actually a scaled down version of the Brooklyn Bridge. It is the first steel wire suspension bridge ever built. You can walk across the bridge -- a nice experience.
