The Scenic Cincinnati Bridge Where You Can Stand In Two States At Once

As a city along the river, Cincinnati is known for its scenic bridges that span the Ohio River. They add even more visual interest to our already stunning skyline, and of course, provide an easy way to get to Northern Kentucky. One of the most eye-catching bridges that connect Ohio and Kentucky is the Newport Southgate Bridge, more commonly known as the Purple People Bridge. This colorful bridge provides some of the best views of Cincinnati, and it also has an interesting history and a few features that may surprise you.
