Best New Midwest Attractions: 2009
Walk over the Big Mo
Omaha and Council Bluffs, Iowa, got a bit cozier last fall with the much-anticipated opening of the $22 million Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge. The 3,000-foot-long lighted span links the cities, soaring 52 feet above the Missouri River. The pedestrian bridge is one of the world's longest. Twin towers and a cable design mark it as an instant icon.
