The Lewis & Clark Landing is a park along the Missouri River named after the 1804 Lewis and Clark Expedition. It is located just north of Omaha’s downtown, and features open space, benches, and historic exhibits. Its convenient access and numerous events make it a frequent destination for Omaha residents.

The 23 acres of the Lewis & Clark Landing are primarily coverd over with paving stones, making for an elegant mixed-use space perfect for housing outdoor gatherings. The Playing with Fire concert series has been held there since 2004, and newcomers like the Maha Festival and Riverfront Wine Festival continue to make the landing a popular destination.

Those looking for more green space can use the walking trails which connect the Lewis & Clark Landing to Miller’s Landing and the Heartland of America Park. The Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, a walking bridge which connects to Council Bluffs, IA, is also accessible.

The Martin Luther King Jr. Pedestrian Bridge connects park goers to the Qwest Center.
