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.

Wow the bridge itself is a beauty a masterpiece of engineering, I love looking out my window at night and watching the lights. The bridge itself is a fun walk about a mile round trip if you just walk the bridge and it gives you a chance to interact with some of our friendly neighbors. The view from the bridge... More

Fun to go across any time of the day, and the lights are neat at night. Bike or walk. The little museum at the base on Nebraska side is neat with animal and Nebraska exhibits, and walking along the waterfront is always neat.

This bridge connects Omaha to Council Bluffs. It is a great looking structure but you just walk across it.

If you're wanting to just meander around and nonchalantly explore the area, the bridge is a great experience. We walked along the riverfront from the park (a bit farther than we expected). But walking along the bridge and checking out the river and riverfront is an amazing view.We went around sunset (I highly recommend it!) There's also some cool facts... More

We had been by the Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge on several occasions, but until recently had not taken full advantage of it. We finally took our family on a fall afternoon. The trees were beautiful & there was just a general sense of euphoria out of the experience. Many were taking walks with their families, joggers were jogging, people were riding... More

A very nice leisurely walk or fast hike across the Missouri River. Good for singles, couples , families or bikers. A unique view of the area. May be easier to find a parking place across the river in CB. The Omaha side is more developed but the CB side is being worked on. Once was going to do a nice... More

A fantastically made bridge from one nowhere spot in town to basically a scrub forest on the Council Tuckey side of things. No point in this, except to spend boondoggle money.
