  • The bridge is cool to see but it was closed to pedestrians due to snow and ice which was a bummer. Very pretty though and I got to stand at the look out to see it.  more »
  • This is a beautiful bridge and it was a lot of fun for my kids to be in two states at once. Our family raced to see who could get to Iowa first.  more »

  • This is a beautiful bridge that you can walk/bike from Omaha to Council Bluffs. Along the way there is cool information about the Missouri River, the bridge itself and other interesting facts. On the Council Bluffs side, they have an open theater (I have yet to be to a show there, but it looks cool) and a fun kid park. On the Omaha side, there is more to walk around to see and do as you are in the downtown area. Right near the Bridge there is a fun water fountain that little ones can run through. Take a short walk along the riverfront and you can find shopping and restaurants. This is an enjoyable and FREE thing to do in Omaha, NE.
  • Love taking my children and dogs in the late evening/ night hours. Seems more peaceful and calming. The view of the surrounding city over the river is just gorgeous. Plus the bonus of good healthy exercise and fresh air right before bed does the body good. Know matter how many times my family and I walk it, definitely never gets old and is always worth it.
