This beautiful antique has been linking Cincinnati, Ohio and Covington, Kentucky for 150 years. Cars "sing" as they travel across the metal grates. Ample pedestrian pathway (6-8 feet wide) on both sides makes it easy to walk or bike across. Smale Park and the Great American Ball Park (Home of the Cincinnati Reds) are near the base on the Cincinnati... More

This is truly a classic straight from the history books! This 150 year old structure is a tribute to it's design and a testament to Kentucky and Ohio for keeping this marvel that bridges not only the Ohio River but ties North and South together. I can't go into the historical significance of this bridge here, but suggest your look... More

I photographed it and drove over it and I can say it's a very nice bridge. I've been to San Francisco, Pittsburgh and New York and this bridge holds up. It's not as nice looking at the Golden Gate Bridge, but it's looking very much like NYC bridges that look great, but it's more about functionality than anything else. I... More

The bridge makes a great backdrop for photos. It is certainly the most beautiful bridge in Cincinnati and offers a great option for walking across the Ohio.It feels narrow to me when i drive across the Reobling, plus driving its harder to really enjoy the aesthetic beauty of the bridge Most peole know the history of the bridge as the...

A must see while in the city! It is breathtaking from afar and even better up close! Park your car and walk across and take photos. Such a beautiful bridge, I posted quite a few photos to my blog http://www.celebratingthislife.ca/2015/08/morning-in-cincinnati.html

This bridge was designed by the man who designed the Brooklyn Bridge in New York. It is a fine example of engineering and design. It provides some great views of the city skyline.

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
