Awesome way to get bragging rights ... Straddle the Iowa / Nebraska border suspended over the Missouri in a storm. Loved the selfie.

I walked across the Kerrey Bridge on a sunny Sunday morning and enjoyed it. There weren’t that many people on the bridge, but it was very windy. The cables were vibrating and the bridge was shaking a little bit. The walkers and joggers were very pleasant, but some of the bicycles were going way to fast. And if you yell... More

This is a fun Sunday or Saturday activity. I love that you walk over the river, and both ends are well connected to trails so you can run or bike this as well and make it part of a workout.

If you are downtown at market, take the time to do this. The bridge connects Nebraska and Iowa across the. Missouri River. I walked it but if I knew better I would have rented a bike because the connects with hundreds of miles of flat, smooth trails.

I went by myself for a nice break from homework. Found there to many a couple trails that went along the Missouri River & the path that crossed the bridge. There is a great view of the Omaha skyline from the Iowa side of the river. It will be a great place to go when the colors start to change.

Overall, the Bridge is a nice and relaxing way to enjoy the scenery around the Missouri River. However, it is a little out of the way. Worth the trip if you have the time and the weather is good.

A good vantage of the river and city. It is a curvy suspension bridge with some interesting features. You can cross over from Nebraska to Iowa on foot and is a good place to run.

I walked across the bridge and then took some of the trails along the Iowa side, passing several casinos. The trails are paved and well-maintained but not very scenic. After crossing the bridge again into Nebraska, I walked along the river in Omaha. If you head towards the left, there are many beautiful parks with fountains. It's a nice walk.

I always enjoy walking over this bridge anytime during the year. Plenty of other attractions on Nebraska and the Iowa sides of the bridge also.
