This is a fun place to take a walk, with views of the Omaha skyline. There is a fountain at the start of the bridge on the Omaha side, and this is great for the kids to run through on a hot day. There is also a National Park visitor center near the bridge that is fun to visit

A bridge is a bridge is a bridge. This is across the the Missouri and is for people walking only. It connects to State, Iowa and Nebraska and has a certain artistic flare to it but other wise a few minutes is sufficient. Not much on either side is you take 5 minutes to walk it

If there's a cool moon out, this is a nice night walk. If there are fireworks, you can see them from here. Great walk for your dog, nice bike ride, short-cut to the casinos. Just a nice place.

The bridge connects Nebraska and Iowa. There is a spot on the bridge where the two states divide so you can stand in both states at the same time. There are trails extending from both sides of the bridge for walking, running and biking. Pretty views and nice lighting at night!

Stupid unnecessary bridge that crosses into Iowa and goes nowhere. There's no reason to drive downtown park and walk across the bridge over the Missouri River. No where to eat nothing to do.

It's a bridge, and as far as that goes, it's decent. There are a few spots with information about history/location/etc. Those are alright as well. Recreational boaters are sometimes an interactive experience. Late at night, however, it gets kind of sketchy. Also, the eastern end is Council Bluffs...and, well, a part of Council Bluffs that helps us earn the moniker... More

Bridge is even more breath taking in real life. I highly suggest getting off the beaten path, venture over, and check out the bridge. They have rent-a-bikes there so you can bike across instead of walk. Great way to get in a work out. Parking was a little tricky since the lot is very small, but don't let that scare... More

I thought this was a great bridge to walk over and have one foot in Nebraska, and one foot in Iowa. My boys ages 10 and 12 weren't so impressed. Beautiful at night.

20 minutes walk to see the downtown omaha from a very beautiful angle. The bridge is perfect for couples to spend the evening together talking and sharing.

This is a great place for some exercise and a nice view. I loved it! Especially seeing the state lines. Highly recommend it for a photo op.
