“Fantastic Views”
Reviewed February 16, 2012

The refurbished monument is lovely and the view of the Nebraska and Western Iowa landscape is spectacular. I good learning experience for the kids too. Nice to take a drive up on a sunny Sunday and spend 20 minutes. Take your telescope or binoculars and have a little fun seeing what you can see.

“Great views at a great price”
Reviewed February 10, 2012

This overlooks the Omaha airport area and Missouri river. Great views at a great price... FREE.

I think it closes at 10 PM so no lovers lane.

“A nice scene”
Reviewed February 8, 2012

You can see the airport in Omaha from here, and is fun watching planes taking off and landing with the kids. This past summer it was probably visited more than it ever has because of the flooding. It over looks Big Lake and I29 which because of the river flooding almost looked like one the great lakes!
