“Cool Bridge-Great View of the River”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

Wow, it's a purple people bridge. What a great concept, no cars allowed! It's a bridge over the Ohio River connecting Cincinnati, OH to Newport, KY. Well maintained and yes it is purple! Neat to walk over at least once in your life!

“Great view of the Ohio River”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

We find that it is a great bridge to walk over the Ohio River and look at boats, jet skies and anything else that seems to float right beneath you. The day we went the Ohio River was really flowing. It's a fun thing to do when you go into the city!

“Lots of walking.”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Very good idea to get workers from Cincinnati to Newport for lunch but when walking from Newport to Cincinnati not much to see. Typical downtown.

“A Nice Walk”
Reviewed August 27, 2013

Nice view. Bridge is well maintained and clean with large potted plants along the way. Plus Newport on the Levee is a nice facility on the Kentucky side -- a mall-like place with a cool art gallery, cinema and the aquarium.
