This is a really nice place to take your spouse or children has a great view of the river and down town river front. The lights at night are really neat to see on the bridge.

Nice views. Place smelled like urine. Leads to an empty parking lot where a casino riverboat used to be.

Nice view. Although it smells bad. Also some of the lights are burnt out. There is garbage and rust on the bridge. View is nice. Bird repellent noise is annoying

Definitely worth the trip, I mean it's just a sky bridge over looking the river. Cool at night with the LED lights!

So it's a bridge that lights up and changes colors and doesn't go anywhere. Good for popping back some caps and stems and watching the colors change. I have never done this but I could see where this would be fun. I have only been...More

This is the worst place ever! Smells like a urinal. Half the lights were out and homeless people hang out there so it's a little scary don't bring your kids.

Yes you can! The first time I'd visited it was closed down due to a wedding.

What is the best time of day to visit? Does it offer a good view of the sunset?

Response from KuhlHandLook | Reviewed this property |
Yes, it has a view of a sunset but, the casino at the end of the SkyBridge has a nice park beside it that runs along the Mississippi River. The closer you get to the river, the better the view. Note: the SkyBridge goes North... More
