While in Omaha we decided to take a short detour to see the bridge and take a family picture of us crossing from Nebraska to Iowa. The view from the bridge was picturesque and the breeze was welcomed on the hot August day.

This bridge was an inspired idea. Connecting the waterfronts of Omaha and Council Bluffs has prompted attention and development on both sides of the river. I've been on the bridge a few times, both as a pedestrian and riding bicycles. It's a fun stroll if...More

Check this bridge out that spans across the water when you come into downtown Omaha. You can take a nice stroll across and get a little bit of exercise. If you are in the area, please go and check it out.

We take our international students here so they can walk halfway across the bridge and get their picture with Nebraska and Iowa in the cement and a line dividing the two states. I don't feel there is much point in walking all the way across...More

My daughter and I enjoyed walking this bridge and seeing the view from the top. It is a really neat bridge to see and there are some informational signs to read along the way.

The bridge literally leads nowhere, although it provides for some decent views of the river. Other than that there isn't much point to it. Also unless you want to be shot or stabbed the area should be avoided at night.

I would recommend doing this regardless of the weather. We went in late December, it was cold but very neat to see the ice floats in the Missouri River. The have the Iowa/Nebraska border marked on the bridge so you can be in both states...More

Hi Tom, The Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge is a little over 1/2 mile. It's a very easy walk.
