Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge

Omaha River Front

Omaha's riverfront is all about the view and the viewpoint.

North America's longest river, the Missouri, flows on the eastern edge of the city creating a natural border between Nebraska and Iowa and a natural oasis for boaters, hikers, bikers, birdwatchers and anyone who enjoys the outdoors.

The best seat in the house above the river is from the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge.  One of the longest pedestrian bridges in the United States, the 3,000 foot long walkway curves and stretches its way across the Missouri River giving visitors a spectacular view of the skyline and an almost airborne experience.  Some say you can even feel it sway as you walk across.  Bob also connects more than 150 miles of nature trails on both the Nebraska and Iowa sides of the river. 

Next to the bridge, you'll find the 23-acre Lewis and Clark Landing, named in recognition of the exploring duo that helped put Omaha on the map. A riverfront boardwalk connects to Rick's Cafe Boatyard which offers indoor and outdoor dining. A circular stairway leads to the colorful river-level plaza, with umbrella tables and chairs, and to the Riverfront marina. North of the Landing is the Carl T. Curtis National Park Service Midwest Regional Headquarters and the national headquarters of the Gallup organization. Two smaller pedestrian bridges connect the Landing to Heartland of America Park and CenturyLink Center Omaha, the city's convention center and arena.

Upstream, you can enjoy an authentic riverboat ride aboard the River City Star. At NP Dodge Park, you'll find 445 acres of riverfront beauty, a marina and campgrounds.  And a piece of naval history is preserved at Freedom Park, which serves as a United States Naval Museum on the Missouri River and is home of the USS Marlin SST-2 Submarine and the USS Hazard AM-240 Minesweeper.
