The Unique Jaw-Dropping Bridge In Nebraska You’ll Definitely Want To Cross
If you’ve ever spent time along the waterfront in downtown Omaha, you’ve no doubt seen the graceful behemoth straddling the Missouri River. The Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge is an impressive sight, to be sure, and a lot of fun to walk over. But the 3,000 foot walkway is so much more than that. It breaks records and connects two states, all while looking positively magical.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately.

The pedestrian bridge was a joint project between Nebraska and Iowa, and it turned out beautifully. Although there is more to do at the bridge’s terminus on the Nebraska side (sorry, Iowa), the bridge itself is a can’t-miss experience when you’re in the area. You can even keep up with the bridge on Twitter: @BobTBridge.
