I bet this would be cool to be up in at night. Or in the summer when there is river traffic. It was cool and rainy when we were there, so it was a nice warm up to cross inside the bridge. I question safety...More

Great views of the mighty Mississippi river. Located near downtown DAVENPORT. Lots to do and great places to eat. Right by the Modern wooodman stadium.

Makes you feel funny somehow. Not unpleasant however. I think it's because the walls tilt outward at the top. Not for those with vertigo ! The lights change color constantly -- adding to the effects. It was fun to walk through. !

It is worth a visit to view the riverfront and downtown area. A great viewing area. It gives you a good vantage point to acquaint your self with the Davenport riverfront. Plus, it is totally free, heated, and air conditioned!

I am not really sure what the purpose of the skybridge is. It really just goes from parking garage to a closed up casino.

A local curiosity, with the casino gone it truly is an elevated bridge that goes to nowhere. It is an interesting place to go once to look out over the downtown area. It has become a hangout at night for some younger folks.
