We planned an overnight trip to Omaha recently on what turned out to be one of those bone-chilling cold days we have here in the Midwest. The forecast called for snow showers, 30-mile-an-hour winds, and temperatures dropping to below zero that night. Instead of cancelling the trip, we made a bold decision and decided to embrace the challenge of finding things to do in Omaha when it’s freezing. And, we got a great deal on our hotel rooms, never waited in a line, and had rock star parking everywhere we went!
In perhaps Nebraska’s most innovative and entrepreneurial city, the changes are balanced by the constants: music, art, cuisine — and, of course, Warren Buffett.

Omaha, Neb., and Council Bluffs, Iowa, are far from twin cities, but their proximity to one another makes for a multifaceted destination equipped to serve a wide variety of meeting preferences. While Omaha percolates with urban excitement and Council Bluffs has a more laid-back vibe, both offer groups outstanding amenities, accessibility and services.
With a rich culture and history, Omaha offers plenty of interesting activities to do if you’re in town. From the beautiful gardens to the Holland Performing Arts center, you’ll find plenty of things to marvel at, places to eat, and spots to relax. Check out 75 of our top selections in the state.

It was a coup of epic proportions. They never saw it coming. Well, actually, they did, since Lisa worked with the Omaha visitors Bureau (Visit Omaha) for a weekend takeover of their Instagram account. We toured parts of Omaha not many people take in during their travels to our burg.
So, Omaha, Nebraska obviously isn’t in Iowa. And, it is far from being a small town. But because Omaha is packed full of adventures and is a super close neighbor to our great state, I just had to share our recent trip to the big city.
While it can be exciting to travel far and wide for adventure and good times, sometimes, we don’t have to go very far at all. In Part 2 of our posts about our visit to Nebraska, we explore Omaha which, I’ll admit, I can’t say without hearing Peyton Manning’s play-call in my ear. Far beyond being the home of Omaha Steaks, Mutual of Omaha and the home of Warren Buffett, Omaha has so much to offer.
Omaha has so many amazing things to offer for families! At the top of that list is the Joslyn Art Museum. Thanks to a grant starting last year, museum admission is now free, with the exception of the featured traveling exhibit.
