Different look at the City

This bridge is a different way to see Omaha. Nothing flashy here, but there is a visible line you can stand on to be in Iowa AND Nebraska at the same time. This is a pretty... read more

Apparently in honor of Bob Kerry - it goes over water and has a neat story and some nice architectural elements. I can't think of a single thing to add that would be helpful so I'll just be a cheeky monkey.

This bridge is a different way to see Omaha. Nothing flashy here, but there is a visible line you can stand on to be in Iowa AND Nebraska at the same time. This is a pretty sight at night too. Bikes are allowed. Sometimes you may have to park a bit away and then walk to the bridge. Usually not... More

Good trail and bridge with a nice view. Fun to be able to be in two states at once. Good photo ops. Nice for a warm day.

The Kerry Bridge is a great place to walk out all those calories from Wheatfields in the Old Market. The Omaha skyline is lovely to see as one walks back across the bridge from Council Bluffs. Great to

Fabulous views. Rented bikes and spent a morning riding around the riverfront. Good way to spend some time and see some sights.

We call it locally The Bridge to Nowhere. Because that's what it is. They are going to build some stuff on the CB side, that may help. Somehow this bad boy needs some spicing up. My idea is a few water canon's on it for Summer use. NO not to spray walkers. For spraying the boaters as they go by.... More

The view over the water is so fabulous that you forget that you are exercising while walking over the bridge & back!

You know, I thought the idea for this bridge was rather silly when the talk began about it. And while it's not something I want to do regularly, it's a great view at different times of the day or evening. The "Muddy Mo" isn't necessarilly burgeoning with romantic sonnet ideas. And I found, as a senior, I was a little... More

If you're looking to walk across the Missouri River from behind an apartment building in Omaha to an empty field in Iowa, this is for you! Otherwise there's not much here. There are good views of the Omaha skyline i suppose. I didnt understand this when we built it and i still dont get it. The parking is terrible and... More
