  • This bridge was an inspired idea. Connecting the waterfronts of Omaha and Council Bluffs has prompted attention and development on both sides of the river. I've been on the bridge a few times, both as...  more »

  • 🏆TOP 10 PLACES IN AMERICA A must when visiting Omaha. Dazzling giant 21st century suspension bridge for foot traffic at location of historic Missouri River crossing of Lewis and Clark. National Monument with interpretive center. Free parking, free admission to center and bridge. Interactive splash pad. Prairie flower gardens
  • Very cool location. We went at night and the lights were beautiful. There were bikes you could rent, and it was beautifully paved all around the bridge so it would be a blast to bike, roller blade, or skateboard around.
  • My only time in Omaha was brief on the way back from a long road trip. We had heard a bit about this relatively new pedestrian bridge, and it turned out to be a great way to stretch a bit on a walk over the Missouri River. I am a fan of the placement and the connecting trails on the Omaha side. It was a great view of downtown Omaha, quite scenic, and look forward to travelling through this area again on the way to Chimney Rock, Scotts Bluff, and the Colorado Rocky Mountain ranges.
  • Great place to visit while at Omaha or Iowa. It's the one time you will be at 2 states at the same time. It's clean, always full of runners and families walking. Beautiful pictures at sunset.
  • One of the must do's when visiting the Omaha area. The bridge has a boundary line separating Nebraska and Iowa. Just a really good place to take a couple pictures and claim you've been in two places at once! Also renting the bikes to bike up and down the Missouri river was fun too.
