The Bob Kerrey pedestrian bridge is an architectural wonder. If the weather is nice, it's a pleasant place to stroll and gaze upon the Missouri River and downtown Omaha. When the Iowa side of the river catches up, it will be a major attraction in the area.

This bridge is beautiful, it crosses the Missouri River and connects Iowa and Nebraska. At night, it is lit up and is very secure. Police are always present. On the Omaha side, there is a water fountain that the kiddos love to play in. We usually drive over to the Council Bluffs side, so we can take a walk and... More

The halfway mark is the dividing line between Iowa and Nebraska. It had amazing views of the city and was a great morning walk from the Old market District.

Locals call this bridge the Bridge to Nowhere, since there isn't that much to do in Council Bluffs. The bridge cost $22 million dollars to build and this is a cool bridge to walk on. If you are in the Omaha area, walk on this bridge. It offers a beautiful view of the Missouri River.

This is a very nice pedestrian crossing over the Missouri River. Nice views from the top and beautiful structure. We walked to Iowa! :)

A friend's brother designed it so we wanted to try it out. Great view of Omaha, fun to be over the river, saw a cruise boat passing underneath. Lots of bike and running traffic

Bestriding the great Missouri River this footbridge is worth the walk. In the middle you can stand with one foot in Iowa and the other in Nebraska. The approaches are tastefully done as well.

What a cool place to visit. I love that you can walk/run on this beautiful bridge crossing the river. The best part though is when you reach the part of the bridge where the two states share a border. It is marked on the bridge so you can take a cool picture straddling the line...giving you one foot in Iowa... More

We were in Omaha on business for 12 days, and we wanted to see the city. This is one of the things we chose to do. If you're in Omaha, you must visit the bridge, because how often do you get to stand in two states at once? :-) There are bikes available to rent that you can ride on... More
