  • We had a little time to kill so checked out the Pedestrian Bridge as a potential place to take family in the future. It was beastly hot so not as enjoyable as it could be. The bridge is impressive...

  • Such a cool spot and love that it's always open to check out! We were in town for a concert and stopped here one night to explore! It was a little rainy and cold but got some great pics of the lights and bridge! Also. Had an awesome guy take some pics for us...he might have had one too many beers but made for a great laugh when we went back through and discovered his photography skills...or. lack. thereof.
  • I love this pedestrian Bridge. It is especially pretty at night with the lights on. There is a small parking lot next to the bridge that tends to get filled up pretty fast. There's no overflow parking lot so be aware. There's a marker on bridge for stateline between Iowa and Nebraska slightly beyond the half-mark point. There's some information and fun facts about the river and fishes on the bridge, which is also pretty cool.
