John Roebling built this suspension bridge before he built the Brooklyn Bridge. It is old but has been well maintained. At night, a string of lights highlights its suspension structure. If out for a good walk, take the "river walk"(the path is marked) from Theodore...More

We parked on the Newport side. Inexpensive and/or free parking. Nice shops and restaurants along with a movie theater all close to the bridge. Great for teens and family.

There is a public parking area behind Molly Malone's restaurant just up the street from the Covington end of the bridge. It is filled on weekdays from 9-5...but in the evenings or weekends there is plenty of parking.
