I was lucky enough to be in Omaha on a sunny cool early fall day and took a walk across this awesome pedestrian bridge. It is a suspension bridge so if it's windy (or a jogger passes you) you can feel the bridge sway. Awesome. Crossing allows you to walk across the state line from Nebraska to Iowa which was... More

Great bridge to cross the river. The area on the Nebraska side has lots of neat attractions, including a National Park building to get your passport stamped at.

The Bob is a pedestrian bridge across the Missouri River connecting Nebraska and Iowa. It is an excellent display of modern engineering. It is very well kept and safe. BUT is a Bridge to nowhere. The Nebraska side is full of fun stuff to do, close to Downtown Omaha, the Old Market and the CenturyLink / Ameritrade facilities but to... More

I have been here a few times. I'm not fond of heights. The view is pretty and the walk is nice. Gives us something to do.

Bob the Bridge (as it is also called) has its own commercials, theme song, and twitter account. What makes the pedestrian bridge interesting is that it starts in one state (Nebraska/Iowa), crosses the Missouri River, and ends in another state (Iowa/Nebraska). Midway on the bridge is a line of demarcation between the states, so you can photograph yourself standing in... More

We've wound up in Omaha twice on business and have come down to the waterfront to walk the bridge each time. It's a cool place that gives you a feel for the power of the Missouri River.

This bridge is advertised in all the Chamber of Commerce emails, "Hi, I'm Bob! I'm a bridge." Very clever and fun. But when we went to go to it, we couldn't find it. There were no directional signs (a problem we found often in Omaha). How can you hide a suspension bridge that spans the Missouri? We walked down past... More

The bridge is great for a short walk accross. The parks at both sides are beautiful. There is construction at the Iowa side, excited to see the finished parks. Very peaceful and the trails and bridge are great for biking or walking.

Went to here from the botanical gardens and thought there was more to do and see. It's connected to the national parks office and they are very helpful and have some free things to do while there. There is a small garden with some information about the Missouri River and the information to the garden. There's a few signs once... More
