  • I go over this bridge all the time so I was a little surprised to see it on a list of 'attractions', but come to think of it she is a very historic and beautiful bridge. I frequent an Irish pub just o...  more »

  • A must while in Cincy - spend the time to walk across the bridge into Covington KY. Great views of Cincy and the Great American Ball Park and park on the river. It takes about 10 mins to walk across.  more »

  • Love this place. However, it would be better if the bridge allow visitors to go to the top.
  • A very interesting bridge to look at. There are 5 bridges that all converge over the Ohio River and cross from Kentucky into Cincinnati. The Roebling Bridge built in the 1860s, is the one that you will pause and study. It is archetecually majestic and visually pleasing. It is interesting in it's design and build. I found myself amazed. I wondered how mankind could build such a thing before modern power tools, manlifts, cranes, gasoline engines, electricity, and CAD engineering programs. Someone had to visualize and figure this all out in their head. The impact and what this bridge must of ment to the citizens of Covington and Cincinnati must have been enormous at that time. I imagine todays analogy would be the U.S. Interstate road system in the '50s & '60s or the development of the intetnet in the '80s & '90s would be similarly life changing. Each free and opening up a brand new world to the everyday common man in it's time. John A. Roebling Company designed and built this and then went on and built the world famous Brooklyn Bridge in NY. There would not be a Brooklyn Bridge if there wasn't this bridge first. Learn more on youtube. Search John A Roebling Company Trenton NJ.
  • An easy path, an awesome view, and a bunch of nice places to visit nearby.
  • Walked across this iconic bridge. Easy walk.
  • Roebling Suspension Bridge is definitely a place of interest to visit. At the age of 150, it is older than the well-known classical suspension bridge-- Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, although much shorter. It would be more meaningful and symbolic if it could be completed before Civil War as Ohio was a free state, when Kentucky was a slavery state. With walkways( on double sides) free to walk, you can enjoy watching the sceneries along double sides of the river. And there's one thing worth mentioning: the running way is not made of asphalt, but hollow metal grids! Thus, the sound from the cars' driving on the bridge are louder than the ordinary ones.
