This is one place I always take visitors from out of state. They enjoy the expansive view of the Iowa/Illinois border with the Missippi River, the Arsenal and Centennial Bridges framing the view. Great day or night, a perfect spot for a photo op. There are numerous shops and eateries within walking distance as well as the fabulous Figge Art Museum.

Visited Davenport for the first time last weekend. Decided to check this out as soon as we got out of the elevator we were waffed with the smell of marijuana. 5 skater kids with their skateboards up there just having a good time. View was pretty however the color was blue the whole time lights did not change

This is not really a skybridge. It is about a 2 block long glass-enclosed walkway from a parking ramp to an empty lot. Evidently there used to be a casino riverboat tied up on the river that this walkway was supposed to entice people to use to head for the casino. Now that the casino is gone the walkway seems to be a spot for the homeless to gather.

It is nice that the city air conditions the enclosed space to make the conditions for the homeless more comfortable. Unfortunately there are no restrooms so the result is a significant urine odor. The homeless people did not cause us any issues. I do not know if the police ever patrol this structure.

If you are looking for river views there is a nice walkway about 200 yards east of the structure end.

It's a nice looking bridge to nowhere. Don't wast you time, the casino boat moved and noiw it's the homeless home. The homeless lives here now. BIG wast of money building this bridge to nowhere. Its just a bridge that goes from a parking ramp to a empty lot. Nothing to see here. Google sky bridge to nowhere and this is what you will come up first.

It's air conditioned, and it gives you a nice view of the river. Only one homeless guy sleeping up there.

If you want a view - go and take a look but there is really nothing to do but to see the view - so if a view is what your looking for if the riverfront go for it!

Neat to see at night when the lights are working correctly, not a place to go alone you will be harassed by the homeless. Dont touch anything in stairwells the homeless sleep, pee, poop and have sex in there, the security of the casino boat,when it was down there had to do checks of the area and always kicking the homeless out and a lot of stuff you dont want to see or your kids to see goes on in there. I think if they extended it our farther so it was over the river some and put in a restaurant or something it would be really cool. Right now its just a waste of tax dollars and a hotel for homeless when the weather is bad or cold. Kids enjoy it but keep close eye on your kids please stay with them at all times.

The skybridge has a nice view of the river and the bridge and to some extent the cities. If you walk down the bridge to the other side, the view is not very good. All you can see is a small courtyard and the buildings surrounding you.
It is is air conditioned in the summer which provides a nice respite from the heat. It would probably be a nice way to get out of the cold winter weather as well.
There are stairs and an elevator.

The lights didn't change any color this entire month. Was really looking forward to getting some cool maternity photos here but ended up using a different location since we couldn't achieve the look we we're going for.
