    Stopped with my grandchildren and walked the bridge and stopped in the visitors center. Not much to the visitors center but the bridge is a good time.  more »

    A good educational visit, but it's nothing to write home over. However combined with a walk across the adjacent pedestrian bridge across the river, does make this a nice visit. Not a bad spot to have ...  more »

    Visited this walkway by the Missouri River last weekend for the 'Taste of Omaha.' A great place to hold outdoor events with tons of space. Also showcases the river and pedestrian bridge well while also giving a view of the downtown high rises. There are multiple historical bronze statues throughout as well that are quite interesting.

    Omaha is a great city to explore. The riverfront walk is wonderful. It is a striking difference as you cross into Council Bluffs on the Iowa side. The city of Omaha is well planned and seems to have focused carefully on nurturing public assets. The Lewis and Clark landing is a nice historical offering that describes the move west.

    Nice area. Passing through town. Lots of hiking. Beautified the city.

    This is a pretty cool area to walk and explore. Surprisingly clean and well kept for the most part. Take time to walk the pedestrian bridge at least once in the spring and fall when the leaves are turning. Parking in Lot A is generally free for events at the CentruryLink Center and there is a convenient foot bridge to the CLink from here.

    Great view of the river. Nice walking paths around Heartland of America Park as well.

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.
