“A good observation point”
Reviewed April 14, 2013

I think the people responsible for this place read Tripadvisor. On our visit, the windows were sparkling clean, the floor free of any litter and no druggies or homeless in sight - just a few families with small children. But the highlight is at the river end, where there is an outside viewing area. As you go toward the city the view gets less and less interesting. They probably could have saved a lot of money but achieved almost as much value if they'd simply built the observation tower and forgotten about the walkway.

“A magical place”

My girlfriend is visiting from Peru and this is the first place I took her!! We shared endless magical moments as we joyfully skipped the length of this beautiful feat of engineering!! I'd highly recommend to anybody who visits the QCA!!

“Be careful”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is becoming a hang out place for crack heads, and homeless... Often smell like the homeless are using it as a public rest room. NEVER go alone or at night.

“Nice vantage point”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

The Skybridge is a free attraction that will allow for a nice vantage point to see the river in downtown Davenport. Worth your time to stop and see. Especially, if you want to see more of the river and the city.

There isn't a lot to the Skybridge, it reaches from the River Casino to the edge of downtown with little other purpose. I can understand why others question the money was spent for this, connecting this to a destination could have made this interesting design much more compelling.

“Waste of money”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

The bridge to nowhere. Pretty lights. A good place to watch a parade. That's about it except for the drug deals and homeless trying to keep warm.
