Enjoy self walking tour from Ohio to Kentucky (or vice versa), it takes not more than an hour for a return walk. Lots of photo chances on the bridge or on the banks, esp sunrise or sunset. Not much traffic, go enjoy bridge walking.

if you like the brooklyn bridge, this would be right up your alley. not as busy as nyc but the view is spectacular too and the walk is way shorter than brooklyn's. it's a lot smaller but it will also remind you of the river seine in paris.

Be sure to either walk or drive across the bridge if visiting Cincinnati. This is near the "Banks" and other local attractions like the carousel and other parks. Very pretty bridge at night.

This bridge is historic and interesting. It was basically the model for the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City so it may look familiar to many people. Coming into Cincinnati from Northern Kentucky on I-75 you will see a great view of the Cincinnati skyline and the suspension bridge. It is a neat landmark.

From the riverbank, it is an easy climb to the protected sides. From the roadway, a simply walk. It's a magnificent bridge, and provides excellent views of a very active waterway showing paddle boats, commercial boats, and folks just having tons of fun on the water. Look away from the water and you can see pieces of Cincinnati's growing skyline.... More

This was the prototype for the [more famous] Brooklyn Bridge. Drive across to hear it "sing!" Taking a narrated riverboat trip would give you an interesting visual and cognitive view of Cincinnati, the river city. You'd see the Suspension Bridge as well as other historical Cincinnati sights, while relaxing on the Ohio River...

My FAVORITE bridge in ALL of Cincinnati!!! It's a SKY BLUE suspension bridge that was constructed in the the 1800s -- it's GORGEOUS!!! Your trip to Cincinnati is NOT complete until you've walked across it! The view of the Ohio River and the city from there is just simply beautiful! It was such a peaceful walk across, and it's not...

The old suspension bridge is the essence of this old river city. One cannot miss it, even when crossing the Ohio on the modern Interstate bridge. Cincinnati was built by the river traffic, so having this bridge is appropriate.

If you like history, then you need to take some time to explore the story behind this bridge and the Roebling family.

Couldn't wait to show this to my visiting guests. So pretty and unique. It's great you can walk up to it and see the details up close. A must to visit and take many pictures.
