We walked across the bridge and back. Then we drove across the bridge in our vehicle. It was pretty, but very cold.

This bridge is beautiful, I suggest going at night. You are able to park and walk over it, drive, or get in a horse drawn carriage. The murals painted below the bridge are awesome and it's just a breath taking structure.

This is one of John Roebling's most beautiful bridges...more so than the Brooklyn Bridge, in my opinion. It's pretty amazing to see a bridge finished in 1866 still in use today...especially that you can still drive across it. It is impressive from the Kentucky side...More

We walked the bridge from Covington, KY to Cincinnati, OH. It was cheaper to park in KY then cross the bridge into OH. There is parking garage and free parking in some place in KY instead of paying the $15 to park in OH. This...More

The Roebling Suspension Bridge is amazing. It's like a forerunner of the Brooklyn Bridge, only smaller. The bridge connects Cincinnati, Ohio, with Covington, Kentucky. It's an easy walk over the Ohio River. Once you are on the deck, you can see the cables and suspensions...More

There is a public parking area behind Molly Malone's restaurant just up the street from the Covington end of the bridge. It is filled on weekdays from 9-5...but in the evenings or weekends there is plenty of parking.

My wife and I and our two daughters (10,13) are coming from Utah mostly to visit Cedar Point for a few days and King's Island for a day or so. We will have about 2-3 days left over to do things in either/or a combination of Cincinnati, Cleveland, or Columbus or areas near there. What activities would you suggest? Which city would you most recommend for this age group? How would you arrange your time? What about fun restaurants? So far the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame sounds like it could be...More

See Cleveland attractions in the following travel article. If your family has any interest in art, don't miss the Cleveland Museum of Art. It has no admission charge to its general galleries, even though it's one of the best art museums in the U.S., so it's a risk-free visit. Also, note the International Women's Air & Space Museum. See the dining article. Note the Rock Hall is open late on Wednesdays. The CMA is open late on Wednesday and Friday. Check out PlayhouseSquare and the West Side...More
