OK, I get the haters that believe it's a waste of city money etc. etc. I don't care. From a visitor perspective, I think the skybridge is pretty cool. Our hotel room had a view of the river and the skybridge and it was cool...More

If you want a view - go and take a look but there is really nothing to do but to see the view - so if a view is what your looking for if the riverfront go for it!
