So much fun to take family pics at the designated area - with one foot in each state! The kids thought it was so much fun to jump back and forth - the bridge is beautiful and had great views!! It was amazing just how breezy it was up there. The parking area left a bit to be desired -... More

Nothing more fun than walking out to the middle of a bridge in high winds, listening to the cables "sing" and feel the bridge sway beneath our feet. If we hadn't spent the previous two days walking our feet ragged, we would have loved to have walked all the way across the bridge and hiked some of the trails. As... More

Anchored at the west (Omaha) end by the Lewis & Clark Visitor Center and at the east (Council Bluffs) by an outdoor amphitheatre area, the Kerrey Bridge provides a unique way to view the Omaha waterfront and the Missouri River. There is ample parking at the Lewis & Clark Center, and the walk across is easy and fun. Kids enjoy... More

This bridge is an interesting connection between Omaha and Iowa. Great views of a not so interesting river in a bit of an historical location. It really is a nice easy walk or bike ride with a nice little splash park for the kids. The Iowa side has a nice park and a great path. If you look close you... More

Nice Park on the Iowa side with live concerts on Sunday nights, starting at 6:30PM. Great views. Good walking/biking trail.

This was a mile walk across the entire bridge. There are benches along the way if you want to sit down. You can stop and return at any point. The bridge goes from Nebraska to Iowa so the kids liked walking across the Missouri River to another state.

This is and always will be the most romantic place I've been. My fiancé just proposed to me in the middle of the bridge. Thanks all who were there to witness it and the encouraging words!

I live close to the pedestrian bridge on the Iowa side and enjoy running over it and into Omaha. It is also a nice spot to take family when they come to visit. It is about a mile over and back and you get some good views of the Missouri River, TD Ameritrade Park, and the downtown skyline.

We live here in Omaha, but get a lot of visitors from out of town. We have taken a number of them to this bridge. I call it "the bridge to nowhere". But, it is still kinda neat. Everyone we have taken there has also enjoyed it.

Did not know what to expect on the Iowa side. Was nothing there to see so we walked back into Omaha.
