Purple People Bridge

Background:
Starting its existence as a railroad bridge in 1872, the Purple People Bridge, as it is now known crosses the Ohio River – one end starting in Cincinnati, OH and the other in Newport, KY.

The bridge became a pedestrian bridge in 2003.  There is an official website for the privately owned structure, so read more detail about it’s history there at this LINK.

Impression:
There are lot of scenic view from the bridge – you have the Ohio River, you can see the Newport Aquarium, Great American Ballpark, and the Cincinnati skyline.

Also, as is popular with many a pedestrian bridge, people have taken to putting locks on the fences to either commemorate their love or to honor those no longer with us.
