This bridge offers some great views, as well as the ability to stand in Nebraska and Iowa at the same time. Try it, and take photos! It was a little bit of a challenge for our mapping app to navigate us to the closest parking...More

What a cool walk! So glad we took time to do this, next time I'd like to bike across. On the Iowa side, they are building a water attraction. Should be really nice when it's finished.

Fourth of July spent a delightful evening on the bridge , people watching, enjoying the Missouri River and the view of Nebraska and Iowa. They look very similar (LOL). Good area for children to work off some energy!

Honestly, this is nothing to make a multi-state trip to see, but if you're in the area, it's certainly worth taking a walk across. Good vantage points for pictures, especially kissing-across-state-line pictures. We actually discovered it by accident when visiting the adjacent Lewis and Clark...More

At it's core it's just a state line, but a very unique one considering the bridge. It reminded me of four corners. And the bridge is very cool, good architecture. Take a stroll and visit the line.

We have crossed this bridge a number of times. Our most recent walk was a beautiful evening, sun just going down, some city lights already on....very relaxing walk and so much to see.

If you want to walk, run or bike this is a great bridge that connects paths in both NE & IA. It is also a fun selfie spot to stand in two states at one time. It's an easy walk from most of the downtown...More

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