This is the best place to get your Nebraska/Iowa line picture. The bridge is nice on the eyes and there are several other attractions nearby.

I recommend taking the time to walk the bridge. You can stand in two states at one time without getting wet. We visited the bridge 3 times during our stay in NE once at night. The bridge is beautiful all lit up. The bridge has a gentle sway when you are in the middle. No need to fear it is... More

On a recent visit to Omaha I wanted to see the Pedestrian Bridge. It is located near the old market area and is a very pleasant place to walk or run

The bridge is beautiful at night. You get the breeze from the river and you can see downtown Omaha, which is beautiful at night! We didn't walk the whole thing because it was very busy, but it would be nice for daily exercise.

If looking for a great view of the Missouri River, this is the place. A beautiful spot to enjoy the scenic vistas on the banks of the river. Kids love to watch the water roll under the bridge, tracking the progress of logs, etc., going under one side of bridge and coming out the other! Be aware that it can... More

The architecture on this bridge is beautiful and is an easy walk from Omaha, Nebraska, side to the Iowa side. It is wheelchair and stroller friendly, also. It is a great place to see the Missouri River and stand between two different states. We were there during the day, but we heard that the bridge is also beautiful at night.... More

We loved walking this bridge! It's a nice stroll and it's neat to get to be in two states at once! The architecture is beautiful! There are fountains at the start of the bridge that kids can play in and a nice hill to have picnics!

While we were in Omaha, we decided to drive down to the river to see what there was to see. I'm so glad we did, because we saw the pedestrian bridge and decided to walk across. It's a cool bridge (you can feel it move a little when you're in the middle) and the view is wonderful. Definitely worth the... More

Firstly the money spent on this bridge could have went to much better things. As for the bridge itself, last time I was there it had gum all over it and spray paint on the Omaha side. Needed a good cleaning!!! Also there really is nothing to look at when you get across the bridge. Skip going here. It looks... More

The architecture was amazing and the sights were beautiful. It was a neat place to visit. It is neat being able to stand in two states at once and to be able to cross over the river on a pedestrian bridge.
