Re: Directions and Parking on Ky. side
Take I-275 to I-471 and get off at Exit 5 (should be Rt. 8) From there, turn left towards Newport on the Levee and park wherever you can. Either walk across the Purple People Bridge or the Taylor-Southgate.
If you want to drive through Covington, stay on I-71/I-75 and get off at Rt. 8/5th Street. Stay on Rt. 8 until you run into Newport on the Levee.
What if this wasn't a rhetorical question?
All models are wrong. Some of them are useful.
