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

So unusual and right off downtown and the Old Market. Crossing a river this large on a walking/biking bridge is special and the view at sunset/night is amazing. Concerts on IA side have been a favorite, the last two years, as well. Great for couples, families, individuals. I love cities and old areas and don't expect sterile perfect environments. Be...

The pedestrian bridge has a cool little museum that you can go through with a nicely landscaped garden area around the building. My young children were not very interested in this. What they did love was the splash area. This was very fun for them and it had lots of seating for parents where you can easily watch the kids... More

This is a nice walk. When you cross into Iowa there is a park at the end of the bridge. You can get a good bit of exercise and it is fun to see where the two states meet and get your picture taken straddling both states.

My wife and I walked across and back I about 30 min. It was February and pretty cold, probably not so much fun if windy out. Nice park on the Iowa side and nice walking/running track on Nebraska side. Parking pretty easy.

This bridge is perfect for an afternoon adventure. There is plenty of room for pedestrians and cyclists and if you hold still you can feel it sway slightly. It is beautiful at dusk when it is lit up.

Cool to walk across, safe and clean. Not a lot to do, but its a nice place to see on the way to or from Heartland of America park. Didnt think it was possible to make the border of Nebraska and Iowa seem interesting, but they did it! Nebraska side has some condos and a small park, Iowa side seemed... More

We had a few minutes to kill before our flight back to home. This is super close to the airport and it was nice to get out and walk before our long flight home. Don't miss this.

How cool is it to be able to say, "I'm standing with one leg in Nebraska and the other in Iowa." Awesome. The bridge is stunning and when we were here, there was a lot of flooding going on so the water was very swift and high. The views around were nice to see. Great place to walk.
