Nice view

Suspension bridge for pedestrian (and bikes) only. Short walk takes you to a spot where Iowa and Nebraska meet. Nice views.

This is a bridge from nowhere to nowhere. Ok, there are certain events held in the north downtown area and on Lewis and Clark Landing, but the bridge is just...there. Doesn't do much or add much of anything to Omaha.

This was interesting experience, wonderful area for family walk, views and fun for kids to see state border differently. There are bikes for rent on both sides, bridge is lit up at night. There is a playground nearby for younger kids.

If you are visiting omaha for any reason. I would highly recommend stopping at Bob Kerrey Pedestrain Bridge. The bridge has great views and you can knock of two different states in about 30 minutes walk.

This is a gorgeous pedestrian bridge, on Missouri river, connecting two states: Nebraska and Iowa. The view is spectacular, from this 3000 feet cable-stayed bridge, which begins from the cool riverfront on Omaha side. An awesome experience to remember.

We enjoyed our walk across the bridge. It was fun looking at the water and standing in two states at once. The weather was perfect for it today.

This is a quick walk to cross the bridge. There are benches on the bridge if you want to just sit and take in the beauty of the water and Omaha skyline. It's close to the Heartland of America park so you can continue past the bridge for a longer walk. It's also walking distance to the Gene Leahy Mall.... More

This is a nice, calm place to go for a walk. The bridge offers some cool views of Omaha, and there is a park on the Iowa side that is a great place to sit and people watch. Don't forget to take the obligatory picture with one foot in Iowa and one in Nebraska!

It was hard to image how beautiful this bridge could be. Whether walking, running, exercising, or just for fun, there is nothing similar in this area. People ride their bikes, walk hand in hand through the night light. It is amazing.
