When we visited the Quad Cities it was right in the middle of a very bad snow storm the worst in years...we were able to walk and check out the beautiful view of the Quad Cities right from this Skybridge.

It's not really high enough to be considered a sky bridge in my view. It's not bad for panoramic views if you don't expect to be very high off the ground. Also the observation deck was closed not sure why. There was no sign stating...More

Thought it would be a big deal but it was not. Smells and is dirty. Please clean it up Davenport, what's there to do around here ?

It is a colorful bridge at night. The bridge really doesn't go anywhere. Use to be a casino at the end of it on the Mississippi but casino is moved now. I see where people of the community use it for walking to get exercise....

This glass bridge is very unique and worth the trip to see it. It crosses over the highway from Davenport to the Mississippi River with views of the Arsenal dam and the Centenial bridge. From the landing at its end, you can scan Leclair park...More

There is no need for a review of nothing. I would never recommend checking out this sky bridge to nothing. Location is very crappy, don’t take your kids to this area. There is no view of anything good or interesting. Waste of taxpayers money.

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

We visited this sight and although there are some panoramic views of the Mississippi and the locks, it is unkempt and unappealing. A one block walkover from the Mississippi to 2nd street. There is NO CASINO at the end of this. That casino moved a...More

Known locally as "The Bridge to Nowhere", this bridge offers a cool and interesting experience on the river front. It gives you a great view of the river and downtown, and the color-changing LED lights make the experience fun for little ones (you may find...More
