Walk to Iowa from Omaha...Great view of the city, a pleasant walk over the river. It will be better when there are more attractions on the Iowa side...but a great place for a walk or bike ride, nonetheless.

Safe gentle concrete walk (or bike) across the Missouri River. Decent parking on the Omaha side. Go at night and see the beautiful cable lighting. Be sure to continue over to the Council Bluffs side to walk around the Riverside Park - at night lights flick around the large meeting field to the amazement of the kids. Takes about 2... More

The "Bob" is a fun adventure to stroll over the Missouri river from Nebraska to Iowa. The architecture is amazing and the views are great. Take a photo on the bridge standing in BOTH Iowa & Nebraska.

We were in Omaha for a weekend family getaway and decided to spend the last nice day of fall checking this location out. We were not disappointed. I highly recommend walking this bridge. Especially since its fall, the landscape was beautiful. You have the river around you, trees, wildlife and then in the distance you can see the tall buildings... More

This bridge and the surrounding area is pretty well manicured. There are several bars and restaurants in the area so this is perfect for a stroll to walk off the big meal you just had at The Old Market. The area is great for running or biking and a route for people to get to the Wabash Trail from Downtown... More

Extremely nice view of the river and the downtown.. you can walk from there down to the Riverwalk and to the Heartland of America Park. Excellent for a day or evening stroll, you can enjoy crossing the state line as you walk down the bridge!

Sensational scenery, fascinating fun, whether you walk it or decide to run, with brilliant lights that glow at night, the view is magnificent no matter the light. It's a long stretch across the way, yet worth the adventure most any day. Don't be afraid, it's all secure, although its not legal to carry a beer. Just bring your energy and... More

This is a bridge that transcends the Missouri river that divides Nebraska from Iowa. It is very much worth a visit. The view of the river is spectacular; do not, however, expect to find much on either side. It's takes perhaps 30 minutes, at most, to walk side to side. Try walking during the day since little can be seen... More

It's a bridge over a muddy river. While it is good for a nice evening walk on a date, that's really about it. It's not as exciting as people make it out to be. See it once if you have nothing else to do.

The Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge is a great addition to any trip to Omaha. The graceful design and the views from the bridge make it well worth a visit.
