A very beautiful and historic bridge. This bridge was designed by same person and served in part as a prototype for his monumental Brooklyn Bridge. The John A. Roebling Suspension Bridge spans the Ohio River between Cincinnati, Ohio and Covington, Kentucky.

My grandson from Michigan needed a picture of where his Grandma lives for a school assignment. I chose to go downtown and take a picture of the Roebling Bridge as it is one of Cincinnati's distinguishing landmarks. It is a replica of the Brooklyn Bridge in NYC; designed by the same architect.

Cincinnati is very fortunate to have such a wonderful structure. Built by the man that did the famous Brooklyn Bridge except it predates NYC's bridge by 5 years!

My wife and I are new to Cincinnati and decided to explore downtown. We parked near the stadium and enjoyed a nice walk over the Roebling bridge. The Reds Were playing and we walked over the bridge just to see where it went. Some nice views and a very pleasant walk. About 4-5 miles round trip

This is one of the first bridges that was built in the USA, the bridge is a bit exciting to walk on as you feel that on one side you are very close to the cars and on the other side you are very close to the river

Beautful view of the River, the Cinn Stafium and Cincy in general, nice bike trails in Smalee Park, worth renting a bike and riding over the bridge to Covington as well.

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.
