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.

Beautiful views and sometimes fun people watching. We especially like to go when the Iowa side River park is having outdoor concerts. Try to catch a sunset on the bridge it's an amazing photo op!

Visit with my kids during Thanksgiving break. You have to walk / bicycling (rental available) to the middle of the bridge where border line of Iowa & Nebraska located. A must visit for a photo session.

The bridge is a walk and bicycle friendly bridge. State line is about center of bridge. So if do not go all the way across, at least go to the state line. Parking area at each side of bridge. Pretty view.

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