“See the Riverfront & Skyline”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Anchored at the west (Omaha) end by the Lewis & Clark Visitor Center and at the east (Council Bluffs) by an outdoor amphitheatre area, the Kerrey Bridge provides a unique way to view the Omaha waterfront and the Missouri River. There is ample parking at the Lewis & Clark Center, and the walk across is easy and fun. Kids enjoy it, and the views of the Omaha skyline are nice.

“Interesting Bridge and View of the Missouri River”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

This bridge is an interesting connection between Omaha and Iowa. Great views of a not so interesting river in a bit of an historical location. It really is a nice easy walk or bike ride with a nice little splash park for the kids. The Iowa side has a nice park and a great path. If you look close you may see deer and other animals.

“Family Vacation July 2014”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

This was a mile walk across the entire bridge. There are benches along the way if you want to sit down. You can stop and return at any point. The bridge goes from Nebraska to Iowa so the kids liked walking across the Missouri River to another state.

“Engagment!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

This is and always will be the most romantic place I've been. My fiancé just proposed to me in the middle of the bridge. Thanks all who were there to witness it and the encouraging words!
