This is a nice, calm place to go for a walk. The bridge offers some cool views of Omaha, and there is a park on the Iowa side that is a great place to sit and people watch. Don't forget to take the obligatory picture with one foot in Iowa and one in Nebraska!

It was hard to image how beautiful this bridge could be. Whether walking, running, exercising, or just for fun, there is nothing similar in this area. People ride their bikes, walk hand in hand through the night light. It is amazing.

The bridge offers a nice place to walk across with family on a nice day. You have to be careful due to bikes, joggers, and dogs also out and about. Plenty of parking. Takes about 20 minutes to go from one side to the other with small children who like to stop and look over the side. Soccer fields on... More

This is an easy and quick outing if the weather is nice. You can walk it or rent (free if less than 1 hour) a B cycle at the bottom. Stand on the bridge with one foot in Iowa and one in Nebraska. O

Awesome place to see and be seen! The walk is wonderful and the park on the Iowa side is perfect to sit and relax!

It's an impressive engineering feat and a fun walk across the river to Iowa. There are bikes for rental at either end of the bridge, but it's an easy walk. We wish we had been there at night, as we understand it's lit up and very impressive, and there is a light show on the Iowa side. Our only complaint... More

We enjoyed going out and seeing the bridge. It has an appealing free flowing design like the river below and the lights in color change mode at the top are kind of creative. Everyone seems to enjoy the photo opportunity on the border line. The river itself isn't that spectacular and the view of the city is only ok. The... More

There is plenty of free parking close to the bridge's Omaha-side entrance. We walked across to attend the summer concerts in the park and we able to easily exit after the show.

This is a nice little walk. It's especially fun for kids to walk from Nebraska to Iowa. Nice picture-taking spots. You have to take the one with one foot in NE and one in IA. The only negative is that there are a lot of bikers that use this as a part of their trail and they aren't too tolerant... More

Visited this bridge in January when it was a nice day and I was on a run. It was the first time I'd been to it since I moved to Omaha in July. It was okay. Nothing too spectacular. I'm sure it would've been a lot nicer during the summer when it is nicer out and the environment is more... More
