John Roebling was awarded the contract for the Brooklyn bridge based on the construction of this and the Wheeling, WV bridge. It is both worthy of study and traveling across. Reading about the effort it took to build a suspension bridge makes it all the more fascinating.

This is a piece of engineering art. While still used for car traffic, there are walking paths on the outside of the bridge. The views of Cincinnati are breathtaking...the trek relaxing. The cables are to marvel - and at either side of the bridge sit cafés and pub type restaurants to reward your quest. Marvel at both the art of... More

Historical beauty over the Historically Important Ohio River, between the wonderful, history-laden beautiful riverfronts of Ohio and Northern Kentucky. The terrain changes immediately from one state to the other. Downtown Cincinnati is a sight to behold day or night (hey, I'm from Columbus, for crying out loud...This is a true RIVERFRONT experience!)

Love driving across this bridge and love to sit and look at it. Very historic and beautiful! This bridge is a precurser to the Brooklyn Bridge and designed by the same gentleman.

Lots of bridges in this area but this is one of the more interesting. Recommend seeing it from the river view... Take a "Duck" tour. Ted Moseby would approve.

What can you say about a bridge? It did it's job well, got us back and forth across the Ohio river and is definitely reminiscent of the Brooklyn Bridge. You can't miss it when in the area.

Photo opportunity stop for sure. Cincinnati's riverfront is nice but go to the Kentucky side in Covington there is a better view of the bridge and free parking under the bridge.

I really enjoyed this bridge during a convention week in Cincinnati. Wide sidewalk, so great for pedestrians. This bridge will take you to the Convington, KY side, and it is a pretty easy walk from there to Newport restaurants, aquarium, etc. While not a pedestrian only bridge like the "purple people bridge" this bridge is probably my favorite to traverse....

It might not be the most famous bridge in USA, but it definitely has a great legacy! I spent an evening taking a walk on and around Roebling bridge. The bridge is one of the most historic bridges in USA and was longest suspension bridge when it opened more than 150 years ago, the now more famous Brooklyn bridge was... More

Very safe, pedestrian friendly bridge. We were staying on the Kentucky side and walked the bridge several times across to the Cincinnati side. At the foot of the bridge on the Kentucky side are a series of murals whether taking some time to see and at the foot of the bridge on the Ohio side is the Great American Ballpark... More
