I made a slight correction to the directions (the last turn) because Greenup Street is also the feeder street to the suspension bridge - if you do use Greenup Street be sure to stay in the right-hand lane after turning from 5th Street (or you may end up in Cincinnati). Instead, I recommend you make your turn from 5th Street onto Garrard Street. Garrard Street is two blocks from Greenup. (Sorry, but I had just copied these directions from the Mike Fink website without reviewing them.) Also - use this link to get an aerial photo with a street overlay of the area:
Revised Directions are as follows -
Traveling South on I-75:
Follow signs for Lexington/Louisville across the I-75 bridge into Kentucky. Exit 192 Covington/Fifth Street. At the end of the exit ramp, turn left onto Fifth Street. Go about 12 blocks to Garrard Street. Turn left onto Garrard Street to the river.
Traveling North on I-75:
Follow I-75 to Covington/Fifth Street (exit 192). Turn right onto Fifth Street. Take Fifth Street down 12 blocks to Garrard Street. Turn left onto Garrard Street to the river.
Traveling South on I-71:
As you approach downtown Cincinnati, follow signs for I-75/I-71 South. This will take you across the I-75 bridge into Kentucky. Exit 192 Covington/Fifth Street. At the end of the exit ramp, turn left onto Fifth Street. Follow this street down 12 blocks to Garrard Street. Turn left onto Garrard Street to the river.
Traveling North and South on I-471:
Take Route 8 (exit 5). Turn left onto Dave Cowens Drive which turns into Washington Street. Follow this to Fourth Street. Turn right onto Fourth Street and follow across the small bridge over the Licking River into Covington. This will be Fourth Street in Covington. Take the first right after crossing the bridge (Garrard Street). This will lead you to the river (and the ship).
Traveling from Downtown Cincinnati:
Go south on Race Street. Turn left on Theodore M. Berry Way. At the stop sign, go right onto the
Suspension Bridge (blue bridge). Continue over the bridge, then turn left onto Third Street.
Go left on Garrard Street (2 blocks past Greenup Street) and continue straight to river.
