  • Its one of those have to see places when in Omaha. Pretty at night Even though there were snow flurries that evening it was still neat.  more »
  • Being afraid of heights, I did not make it very far. My wife walked the entire stretch and got some neat pictures. Be prepared to feel the bridge move.  more »
  • Well it is a short maybe half mile stroll to the state lines. Take a few pictures, take in the views and walk back. Quick 30 minutes is all it takes.  more »

  • A must stop while in Omaha! Beautiful bridge that separates Iowa and nebraska. Great photo opportunity. Near downtown and bikes are available to rent. Kids water play area and great walking path surrounded the facility. Learn all about the journey of Lewis and Clark at the National Park next to the bridge.
  • Love the bridge that takes you to two states with two beautiful parks. On the Iowa side there are interactive light games you can play on the lawn. The bridge itself is very well done with lots of eye appeal. I enjoy walking around the premises in my free time. Plenty of room to add more to this park.
  • I love this place. It's free. It has a beautiful view. At the base of the bridges there's an area that allows you to play in the sprinklers for free. I love taking pictures on the bridge. I like that in the middle of the bridges there's a line separating Iowa from Nebraska.
  • An awesome place to visit any time of year! The trek begins just off of the river front, next to an awesome splash pad open during the summer. The walk from one end to the other, and back is about a mile in length. You can walk, rent a bike, roller skate, run and even walk your dog along this awesome bridge. Just be sure to pick up after Rover though! At night it's a romantic walk you can take with your partner, or a fun filled one with the family as you watch the colored lights atop the spires change, as you progress on your walk to the state line. With a beautiful amphitheater on the Iowa side that can compliment a beautiful sunset with Omaha in the foreground, it's worth visiting. If you time your trip right during the summer, you can even catch the music from river front concerts wafting down the river, or the local casino's firework displays. Which is breathtaking effecting off of the water.
  • Love this place! The view is so gorgeous. It's very well maintained and clean. If you're looking to do something romantic, this is wonderful for a late night stroll!

Where to stay in Omaha

Not surprisingly for a city of its size, Omaha has a diverse range of accommodation options to suit a variety of tastes and budgets. A hotel close to downtown is usually more expensive, but enables guests to experience the best of Omaha's nightlife, shopping, and dining on foot. An apartment rental in one of the city's vibrant residential neighborhoods might be a good choice if you are planning a longer stay in the city. You'll find national chain hotels and motels in many of Omaha's suburbs.
