Locally known as the Purple People Bridge, the former L&N Railroad bridge was built in 1872 linking Newport KY to Cincinnati OH. The last train crossed in 1987 and the last automobile crossed in 2001. After a renovation including a coat of light purple paint, the bridge reopened to pedestrians as the Newport Southbank Bridge. At over a half mile long (2670 feet), it is the longest pedestrian bridge linking two states. My first time in Cincinnati was extra special due to visiting this place. After the world tragedies of late, including the USA's massacre of African Americans in Charleston, the history here and Freedom's Eternal flame overlooking riverfront park and Kentucky truly gives one hope and peace.

The Shark-ray (Rhina ancylostoma) looks like a sci-fi concoction of a shark and a manta ray. In reality, it is neither shark nor ray, it is a bowmouth guitarfish.

Do you hate breaking your teeth? Well, the crunchy hominy from The Eagle Food and Beer Hall is your salvation. Fried hominy salted and dusted with chile and served with a lime wedge. Do you like fried chicken AND buzzwords? Then you'll love the all natural, free range, locally sourced Ohio farm Amish fried chicken! The chicken comes with a hot and spicy honey. It's good but unneeded as the chicken is perfect on its own.

Great American Ball Park was the 5th MLB stadium that I visited. 25 more to go! I got a standing room only ticket. It also rained a lot. Nice ballpark. Great view of Cincinnati from Devou Park in Covington, KY Field trip day at the museum. Three museums in one, plus a research library. The Esquire has some great for children and adults alike. The have musicals like The Wizard of Oz showing with a sing-along costume twist and they have movies for adults to go to as well. 🎤Cincinnati Ohio 🎤 If you are ever in Cincinnati and looking for the best burger in town, I strongly suggest Krueger's Tavern!
Krueger's is located in the Over-the-Rhine district just North of downtown. It small storefront is deceiving, as it has 2 levels and a rooftop patio and bar.
They are known for their sausages, but their Krueger burger and Bacon burger were exceptional as well!
Meal and drink fall in a reasonable price range ($$) Downtown Convingting...
