  • Working in the area and looking for something to do. Turned out to be a nice trip across to River. Don't forget to get your pic on the state line.  more »
  • It was fun to walk over and stand right in the middle of Iowa and Nebraska. If you continue over the bridge there is a splash pad the kids can run through. Fun to look at the birds and some wildlife t...  more »
  • We had a nice time walking across the river. It was longer than we thought it would be-bring water and sunscreen. It's a beautiful bridge, and the nearby visitor center was interesting too. From there...  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.
