The view from the Kentucky side is the best , nothing like walking across looking down at the river and watching the barges go up and down , it's a small version of the famous Brookline Bridge

This bridge was designed by the same architect that designed the Brooklyn Bridge. It has a floor you can see through to the river below. It is beautiful and leads to a beautiful river front park

Went to Cincinnati for an evening ballgame. Decided to do some site seeing while waiting for it to start. It is a beautiful historic bridge, midway through you can take a picture of the city. Free activity to do and I highly recommend it.

We visited the bridge and drove over after spending time at the Smale park right at the base of the bridge. I enjoyed seeing the old bridge and how it has stood the test of time. It's interesting to see how the city has grown but the bridge has stayed the same.

Iconic part of the Cincinnati Skyline scene. The historic character of this bridge is unrivaled in this area. Definitely worth a walk or drive over, and be sure to take pictures.

On our way home, when we see this bridge, then we know we are HOME. What a beautiful sight too behold. The beautiful Cincinnati skyline, great American ballpark, Home is where the heart is. But Florida still holds a place in my heart too.

Built back in the time of the Civil War, it is nick name The Singing Bridge. You can walk across both sides of the bridge, the bridge spans The Ohio River. It is one that you want to walk across, same family who built this bridge, few years later built the Brooklyn Bridge.
