US 52 along the Ohio River

Yesterday, we drove US 52 from Cincinnatti to the Kentucky crossing at Ashland KY (just west of South Point OH). A wonderful alternative to the interstate!

Just outside of Cincinnatti, it turns into a two lane road, with incredible views of the Ohio and the valleys. Though the drive is a little longer, it is so worth the time.

The western part (before coal country) is full of little camping parks at the edge of hayfields, or sometimes, big parks, probably converted from pastures and hayfields. There's a COE park near Rome, OH, not marked in our book, or on the map, that looks lovely.


If you're traveling that area, and have the time, take the drive. It's well worth the extra hour or two to cover the distance. Not much traffic, and so very lovely.


(Cincinnatti was really, really congested. We made the mistake of driving thru downtown, at five thirty, and won't do that again!)
