In less than three hours you can drive from Kansas City to Omaha, Nebraska. Once there you will find a multitude of attractions, activities, and oddities to keep you occupied.

This place makes for a wonderful three day weekend destination, and you can still get back home early enough on the Sunday to catch your breath.
