This is a gorgeous piece of art built during the Civil War and still standing as a safe way to cross the river. It has not been declared obsolete like the expressway bridges. It is especially lovely at night with the small white lights lining the blue suspension cables. A testament to the durability of the old ways and with... More

This was a cool little excursion to kill some time. We walked over the bridge into covington and checked out the old houses on the Kentucky side. Those first few blocks on the Kentucky side of the bridge are really cool if you're into architecture. Pretty good views from the bridge itself. Worth it if you have an hour or... More

BEAUTIFUL bridge that is a Cincinnati icon. Take time to walk across the bridge to get great views of both Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky.

The bridge has an interesting history, and it is definitely interesting to walk and/or drive over, but it is not really that exciting. When driving on it, be careful because the texture of the roadway makes it difficult to control the car, which made me slightly unnerved. It is also hard to find the best place to park. I tried...

I love walking over this bridge every time I am in town during the warmer months of the year. The view of the river is fantastic and it's an opportunity for a healthy and interesting long walk

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.

Spent quite a bit of time trying to figure out how to actually get here, first try we ended up crossing another bridge into Cincinnati on a Saturday night. Never made it the first night. 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!
