My wife and I regularly walk this bridge in the evenings. The fresh air and innovative views never fail to refresh our spirits after a hectic day at work. The periodic special events on the bridge are always a treat. A "must- see" for anyone...More
Not a far walk back and forth from KY to OH. In the center as in France there is a fence to place a lock for your love go online for explanation. Great photo ops and many other bridges on each side make for a...More

The first thing we did, after we checked into our hotel in Newport, Kentucky, was to walk across the Purple Pedestrian Bridge (a short 2 block walk) right next to the Newport-on-the-Levee mall.
We enjoyed early evening beautiful views of the Ohio River, other bridges...More
The Purple People bridge does not just connect KY and OH; it is steps from great family attractions. On the KY side, you step off the bridge into Newport on the Levee. Super fun place with shopping, dining, the famous train ride for kids, bungee...More

We went to the Aquarium and then took a little walk across the bridge. It is a nice walk and the kids enjoyed being in 2 states at the same time. The views from the bridge were nice. Best of all it’s free.
Nice walk across the bridge from Newport News to Cincinnati. On Wednesday's during the summer the vendors setup on the bridge and you can listen to music and drink beer. Great way to get your exercise in for the day!

We stayed at the Residence Inn "The Phelps" by Marriott (see my review) on 4th St, downtown Cincinnati. It's 2 blocks from the bridge, which allows easy access to Newport on the Levee across the river (KY side). You are also fairly close to everything downtown Cincinnati; 5 blocks from Fountain Square. I used Trip Advisor to find the hotel, and we were very pleased. Enjoy your trip!
