So it's a bridge that lights up and changes colors and doesn't go anywhere. Good for popping back some caps and stems and watching the colors change. I have never done this but I could see where this would be fun. I have only been on the bridge during floods to get an interesting view of waters. No mushroom rating... More

This is the worst place ever! Smells like a urinal. Half the lights were out and homeless people hang out there so it's a little scary don't bring your kids.

Took the family to visit the sky bridge on Mother's Day, as we were looking for a place to send off balloons to grandma (my mom) in Heaven. It was perfect!

I love the idea of this. I discovered it during a walk around downtown Davenport during the day. I had hoped to go back in the evening but did not make it. But I took some panoramic shots and it's fun to see the trains run under the bridge from one's vantage point above.

Great view of the Mississippi in the Quad Cities area. Well worth checking out. Leads to the casino on the river end. The pedestrian bridge begins downtown and goes to the waterfront.

It was interesting for about 5 minutes. The walkway inside looks very old and somewhat dirty. It's not very high up, maybe 30-40 feet off the ground. Not a whole lot to look at. The riverfront overall looks like it is in the ghetto. Everything looks about 200 years old (which is probably near the age of Davenport itself).

It's cool to walk across once. Nice view but with the boat there its not as grand as it could be. The lights are neat at night.

Beautiful view of Downtown Davenport Iowa and Rock Island Illinois. We were there at sunset, what an amazing time to see the river front, bridges with the sun setting. Could have the glass cleaned a little better.

Built to take gamblers from a car park to a Riverboat Casino. Casino now appears closed, so don't bother
