Davenport Skybridge
Ranked #10 of 43 things to do in Davenport
Attraction details
Reviewed 6 March 2014

The skybridge is locally known as the "Bridge to no-where". It basically crosses one busy city block. It stops short of the river. During the daytime the skybridge offers nice views of the city and river, great place to take photographs. After dark; is lit up in an ever changing array of colors, gives a kind of funky look as you pass through it. Its climate controlled. My personal thought of the bridge; It makes you want to cry when you hear it cost $7Million to build the bridge that is really a walkway between a parking garage and a casino ($5.3 Million of that was taxpayer money). The bridge really only crosses one major street and most of the casino parking lot. But for $7Million it will provide a nice lasting memory....Isn't that the city with that weird bridge that didn't go anywhere?

We took homecoming photos in 2012 at the Skybridge and thought it was nice. Glad the QC area has it. If you eat downtown Davenport it is nice to take a walk and view. View is nice and nice rails to keep everyone safe and comfortable. I will visit again.

OK, I get the haters that believe it's a waste of city money etc. etc.

I don't care.

From a visitor perspective, I think the skybridge is pretty cool. Our hotel room had a view of the river and the skybridge and it was cool watching the light show. The skybridge was also a convenient climate controlled way to get from 'downtown' to the river edge (and the casino there). It takes you OVER a busy road and a railroad track, if it's cold and the wind is blowing it's almighty nice to get from the old downtown to the river edge out of the wind, without worrying about traffic and without waiting for a train. The night time view from the skybridge was interesting as well.

No, we aren't talking about Seattle's Space Needle or a really fancy destination attraction, but it IS an interesting and useful feature.
