This is the bridge Roebling built before he built the Brooklyn bridge which is an exact copy only slightly bigger. When I was little I called this the singing bridge due to the sound made by car tires on the metal grating of the surface.

All cities with water surroundings are nice, and specially when they build these charming bridges along the river. Loved it!

This is my favorite bridge in the area. I'm not fond of walking across bridges over water, but this one doesn't bother me. The view is beautiful and serene. I recently had the rare opportunity to climb to the top of the bridge with my husband and some friends. The Covington-Cincinnati Suspension Bridge Committee will organize small group climbs to...

As a former history major how could I not love this bridge? At the time of its construction it was an engineering and architectural marvel. Even today its aesthetics continue to impress. Plus, my brother once worked on the electricals up top and assured me of its continued steadiness. It has all the hallmarks of a national treasure and it... More

Cincinatti exists as a city primarily because of the river, and so to skip walking across its bridges is to miss a vital part of the city. The Roebling is the more interesting of them as it has a longer history and is more impressive looking.

First- this bridge is an amazing piece of history! Second I can never look at bridges the same again. We went here on our vacation and in the middle of the bridge my boyfriend popped the question. It was the best and perfect place. This bridge will make me never look at bridges the same way again. If your around... More

Historic bridge crossing the Ohio River between Cincinnati and Covington, Roebling would go on to design the Brooklyn Bridge, and those familiar with that with recognize similar features in the National Landmark bridge. Covington is a cool spot to visit, with some great restaurants, galleries and shops in Coivington Landing as well as the flood wall murals and sculptures of... More
