  • Walking this bridge was such a peaceful time. Great views, great exercise, and great company. Watching huge boats and ferries glide on the water under you at sunset...some might even say it's romantic. If you are looking for a casual stroll the Purple People Bridge will not disappoint. *Don't scare the birds or you might get pooped on.
  • A beautiful place to walk along! Extremely pleasant at night time, with less crowd around. The bridge has some fun games along the path for fun.
  • Even though I tripped over my own 2 feet and gave myself a black eye, this was one of the coolest Bridges I've been on!! I love that they have a place for you to put a lock on like the bridge in France! It's just overall a neat walking bridge!
  • Nice a walk in the evening. River view and Downtown view at the same time. Also, you can find some great pizzas and there are some spots where you can relax on sofas. There is also some live music in the offing.
  • It was a nice way to walk off a awesome dinner at Hofbrauhaus. Across the street. Then across the bridge and back with an awesome view other Cincinnati skyline and the Ohio river.
