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.

great place to go for a run. it takes you over the river and gives you a nice view of the city on both sides. its in a nice area of downtown, so you don't feel like your in a sketchy neighborhood.

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.

We walked from the Heartland of America park to the bridge. It was a nice walk along the Missouri River. The paths were well kept, statues/markers to read about, and benches along the way. The visitors' center had nice facilities.

The bridge is nice to walk on. You can start on the Nebraska or Iowa side and walk to the other state over the Missouri river. If you park on the Nebraska side there isn't much parking available.

What a waste of 20 million dollars! A bridge to the armpit of Iowa dollars. And then to name it after Bob when he couldn't even get re-elected.

The bridge is an awesome sight and a good background for the concerts that are held close by. It is a fun walk across and fun to watch all the people as they come and go. Another one of those things you can say you did.
