Most everyone entering Omaha from the east will notice the beautiful bridge, especially at night when it is lit up. It is a very nice walk over the river. When you get about halfway there is a line marking the... More

The Pedestrian bridge offers a leisurely stroll across the Missouri River for all, even the non-interested. The bridge is well lit at night, well maintained and clean, visually stunning, and yes, one can have a foot in both Iowa and Nebraska at the same time. There are sculptures, picnic areas, free parking, and wide walkways to spend an hour or... More

The bridge is fun to walk across and the views are great. But the national parks visitor center nearby, a splash pad, and a carnival made is pretty hopping at the time Good for summer.

We visited on a clear and sunny Tuesday afternoon after Christmas. The views were great. A nice no cost attraction in the downtown area of Omaha. I'm glad we made time for it!

I hadn't really thought to much about going here but when some co-workers suggested it, it was a no brainer. Fun place to go and it was even a bit warm the day we went! Fun scenery, good place to explore a bit and people watch!!

A fun walk across the footbridge over the Missouri River with great views all the way. Go on a warmer day or be sure to bundle up. You'll be outside. :)

We checked out our bikes near Durham Museum and we rode all over the river trails and over the bridge to Iowa. Which had more trails. But the best part was stopping at National Forest Headquarters on Nebraska side and learning more about the Lewis & Clark trail. Very fun
