We like to check out local attractions on our date nights. We headed over to the bridge to walk off a big dinner. It was after dark and we didn't feel like the lighting was sufficient in the parking area. We did not have any issues but be aware. The bridge is neat and a nice way to spend a... More

The bridge appears to be straight from a distance. Upon walking closer to the bridge, you see that it is not straight. The bridge allows for a great view of the Missouri River.

Park your car over at the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Headquarters Visitor's Center for free and make sure to visit inside the Center if you have a few minutes. Lots of helpful people that can educate you on the expeditions of Lewis and Clark. They also have public restrooms and water fountains with water bottle fill up areas.... More

It is hard to waste 100 words on this useless edifice. It is an enormous waste of money for no real purpose.

What a way to spend a few moments on top of the River in 2 States !! A must "DO" when in the downtown area. Great "Kodak Moment" place too.

The Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge is a very well know bridge that crosses the Missouri River from Nebraska to Iowa. Most everyone entering Omaha from the east will notice the beautiful bridge, especially at night when it is lit up. It is a very nice walk over the river. When you get about halfway there is a line marking the... More

The Bridge is a nice little hike where you can straddle two states and watch the boats running the river. You can catch a nice view of the Omaha skyline and feel the bridge shake in the wind. A great way to walk off a big Old Market dinner. About 45 min from close parking to end and back. A... More

The Pedestrian bridge offers a leisurely stroll across the Missouri River for all, even the non-interested. The bridge is well lit at night, well maintained and clean, visually stunning, and yes, one can have a foot in both Iowa and Nebraska at the same time. There are sculptures, picnic areas, free parking, and wide walkways to spend an hour or... More
