  • There were lots of interesting things to find out about the L&C expedition across the US. Learned a lot of things. We were only there about 30 minutes as we didn't know the attraction closed at 4:30.  more »
  • A very pleasant walk along the river. Make sure that you include the footbridge over the river to Iowa.  more »
  • This is it's own attraction huh? Well - okay, but I guess it seems like all part of the same - ie Heartland park, BK Bridge, etc. A cool sculpture complex for sure - the picture of where the flood wat...  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.
