The bridge is very cool in that it goes over the Missouri River and you can step in Nebraska and Iowa at the same time. It's good for some pictures and being able to say you stepped in two states at the same time, but nothing more.

It was fun to walk over the bridge and see the river. We were a little disappointed that there were no food vendors or more to do during the week.

Even our 10 and 12 year old thought this was worth the stop. Parking on the Iowa side is free. It took about 10 minutes to walk to the middle of the bridge where you can put your feet on the Iowa and Nebraska state lines. We went at sunset so that made the view fun. Nice view of Omaha... More

Wow! I loved the bridge. It was very scenic and we got a little exercise doing it. I am pretty afraid of heights and this was no problem for me. You really need to do this walk. It doesn't take that long and is definitely worth it.

We went on a very hot day but it was worth it. We rented the bikes and rode them up there. Very pretty and also cool to be in two states at one time. There is also a fountain at the end for kids to run through and cool off. There is also a conservation research building near by that... More

The title says it all. You can get some great views of both Iowa and Nebraska. There's a visitor center on the Nebraska side, but we never went in. Worth a trip!

We went on a super hot day, but this is worth walking across. Half way it is marked on the bridge which half is Nebraska and which half is Iowa. We got some great pictures with each of us standing with each foot in a different state! Great views of downtown Omaha.

We visited the place a bit early than dawn but had a good view of the bridge/river and sunset. The Nebraska-Iowa state border is drawn on the bridge. Watch out for cyclists and skateboarders. Night view is also good so spend time from dawn to nightfall and then you can visit Heartland of America Park nearby.
