Long Description:
If you are a history, civil war, art, transportation, sports, or otherwise buff, you can find some free entertainment here. The Roebling Suspension Bridge is the focal point of this area, and offers a leisurely stroll across the Ohio River. Roebling is the inventor of wire rope and built this and the bridge up in Brooklyn, NY. The area is dripping in history, from 8000 BC to the present day. Free parking in the lot at the base of the bridge on the Kentucky side. And did I mention Caching and Waymarking; this is a very target-rich location, with plenty of low-hanging fruit to be had. You can scan the murals in about 20 minutes, or you can spend the whole day here just running around. Quite a spectacular view of downtown Cincinnati. Enjoy!
