  • 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.
  • We come here for the view and atmosphere. We never went to the restaurant that closed down here. I think I walked in there once and I felt out of place, or maybe I just wasn't greeted. Anyway, the trail here and the river view and the benches and just sitting in the car at the parking lot is a peaceful relaxing experience. Not having to pay a meter also makes this a great place to relax and enjoy the view. Truly a great spot to visit with your special someone for a relaxing time...currently. Who knows, maybe some day they'll change this to metered parking and busy busy. At least we'll still have the park I guess.
  • It's a river. And alot of expensive cement. Great for the runners and walkers of the world though. Didn't see any seats to sit down on, did see alot of people just sitting inside their vehicles. 🤔
  • Interesting historical site! Nice museum, cool building!
  • It's a great view and a little windy
