Fun to walk at night when the bridge is lighted

Balmy breezes move against you as you walk from Louisville across the Ohio River to Jefferon Indiana and back! Nice family activity. Worth doing.

This is a nice easy activity for anyone. Have walked leisurely across bridge and had a snack on the other side. Lots of little options on the IN side. Ample parking close by and it's free!!!!

Parking is right next to the beginning of the bridge ramp, lots of families enjoy this outdoor activity. Watch out for bicycle riders.... they zoom some times to close for comfort. I enjoy the views and the exercises very much.

Went on the walking bridge and was nice to go from one state to the next was kook but be in some sort of shape cause it is lengthy, a lot of locals be on bridge dancing and entertaining, and very beautiful at night worth checking out even from afar.

We were able to quickly find a parking place on a busy spring weekend. The walk is long but easy and was very popular. A real slice of Americana with many people of all ages enjoying the sunshine. Great views and interesting history--but pretty crowded.

What a great way to get a look at the river and surrounding area! We went as a family, ages 3-86 and thoroughly enjoyed it! The ramp up to the bridge was a very gradual climb and we all felt totally safe. It's plenty wide, our only concern was when the bike riders came through the crowds riding faster than... More
