Getting to Reds games

I'll be going to a couple of Reds games (a Thursday and Friday night) this summer, and was wondering the best way to go from my hotel in Covington, KY?

I'm staying at the Radisson.

I found some info about taking a ferry ride which drops off right at the Ballpark, which sounded pretty cool, but I just wanted some opinions.

I'd probably just walk across the suspension bridge. It's just over a mile. Here's a satellite photo of the ball park and the hotel. http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=cincinnati+ohio&ll=39.090734,-84.510012&spn=0.015522,0.034676&t=k&om=1

The suspension bridge is the bridge between the football stadium on the left and the baseball park on the right. Your hotel is the roundish building here http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&hl=en&q=cincinnati+ohio&t=k&om=1&ll=39.085621,-84.52136&spn=0.00097,0.002167

It's just over the river next to I-75. You can always drive and park at the ballpark or other close lot if you think it might be too hot and/or muggy, or there might be thunderstorms. I'd only do the ferry if you wanted it for entertainment purposes or something fun/unusual to do. I didn't even know there was such a ferry.

there is also the South Bank shuttle, will get you pretty close to the stadium for a buck each way.

I think you are talking about the water taxi's that go back and forth between Cincy and Northern KY. Yes..they are affordable and fun and an easy way to get to the ball park...or just walk across the Purple People Bridge...it is not hard at all to get from Covington to Cincy...have a good time!
