This remnant of a white elephant project has little value to an already dying downtown district and was installed when the riverboat casino was still on the river. The boat is gone and the purpose of the bridge largely lost and only connects you from a parking garage to the levy. Yes you can see the views of the mississippi... More

Definitely worth the trip, I mean it's just a sky bridge over looking the river. Cool at night with the LED lights!

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.
