This is a pleasant place to walk. I went on a cold December day, so it was pretty quiet. There are bikes to rent on either side of the bridge, which I will definitely come back and try in warmer weather. There are also walking paths along the river that you can access from the bridge area. I noticed that there were a lot of birds in the bushes and small trees on the Iowa side and wished that I had brought binoculars. Walking the bridge was a very nice way to spend time in Omaha. The parking area on the Omaha side does seem quite small though.

Handsome design of a modern pedestrian bridge with a beautiful light show every night. Friendly surroundings and places to enjoy the view of the two states.

This 3,000 foot-long footbridge connects Nebraska to Iowa with a marked line for a photo op with one foot in each State. This is a National Park Service property - who knew? - with a developed park on each side of the bridge. This is a must-see for visitors to Omaha and is easily accessed by parking at Miller’s Landing. A round-trip walk over the Bridge and back is about 10,000 steps. There is a ramp on either side for disability access, strollers or bicycles. Bird Scooters are nearby, but not permitted on the Bridge itself. The Council Bluffs side boasts a large open park with rows of deciduous trees, a tall steel sculpture and a light show at night that can be viewed best from the Bridge (the park is open, but the light show is cancelled due to covid-19). The Omaha side has the Heartland of America park which is under construction and inaccessible in 2020. At night, the Bridge is beautifully lit up making this an integral part of the downtown Omaha skyline. Best views are on the bridge itself, however, in the summer months consider a River City Cruise to see it from underneath. A great half-day activity for families, couples, walking buddies, safe for singles.
