Love taking family from out of town here. They love that the bride crosses in to Iowa and the state line drawn on the bridge. Also, has a great view of the river.

A short walk from my hotel, and as the weather was ok, I decided to walk to and over the bridge. Very nice view of the Missouri River and obviously quite popular with the locals for jogging and biking.

Being afraid of heights, I did not make it very far. My wife walked the entire stretch and got some neat pictures. Be prepared to feel the bridge move.

What a great stroll across the Missouri river! It helped that the leaves are changing and the air was cool and crisp but not freezing.

We loved this bridge named Bob. It is a nice walk over the Missouri River. In the middle of the bridge, markings denote the Iowa and the Nebraska side. The views were beautiful.

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