We take the ferry in order to get from the west side of Cincinnati over to Northern Kentucky. This beats the I-75 south traffic on the bridge or going around the circle freeway. For a very reasonable price, you can ride over to Northern Kentucky...More

If you're not in a hurry and looking for something different from the norm, take the Anderson Ferry. It's kind of fun to cross the river by boat. Kids love it. Cuts a lot of miles off the drive.

It is at least half a mile wide. Has a good current. The ferry has been operating for about a century and half and is on the National Register of Historic Places.
