By about 20 years. Smaller, but similar. If you stay in Covington, you can walk across this lovely bridge to the ball park to see a Reds game!

Built immediately following the architects " Brooklyn Bridge ". Fine example of post Civil War architecture. Also known as the singing bridge...just take a drive across it and see why it is named that.

"The Singing Bridge." This was a prototype for the Brooklyn Bridge. One of the remaining historical constructions in Cincinnati that hasn't given way to Progress! Be sure to see it and drive it!

Great experience, the best view of the downtown skyline. Best time to go was at night, right when the sun is setting behind the city and the skyline is starting to light up.

Take a brisk walk across the bridge to watch the sunset over the river and then stick around and wait until everything gets lit up at night. THe lights on the river are gorgeous.

This was one of our highlights of our trip and we loved it. It is a nice walk on a beautiful day and you get lovely views. I recommend change sides when crossing back because the views of the other side are different.

Roebling Suspension Bridge is a great walk through a historic structure. You can see the similarities of this bridge and his larger and more famous Brooklyn Bridge. Once you get on the Kentucky side, immediately east of the bridge is a section of beautiful old homes. Some are mansions that have been visited by presidents. And there's a nice park... More

I totally enjoyed walking the suspension bridge. After reading about Roebling designing the Brooklyn bridge, it was neat to walk across something else he built. Walked the bridge at night so the view with all the lights was pretty neat. Even had a bonus of seeing a big barge go underneath.

It has great historical significanse. From what I understand Roebling bulit it along with the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC. CVG is no NYC . It's culturally stagnent area who think's its not , very conservative ,very small minded ,very much into there way or the highway. Not open to outsiders views , they say if you don't like us leave,... More
