Omaha Family Vacation Just Got Cheaper

As one final trip before summer ends and we head back to school my family took an #OmahaWeekend vacation in Nebraska. Visit Omaha reached out to me to tell me about their new Omaha Savings App and invited my family to come enjoy some of the attractions that are featured on that app. We were so excited to visit places we’ve been before and some new destinations as well. 

Quick Weekend Getaway to Omaha!

Last weekend, we headed up north to Omaha for a quick weekend away. Some of my husband's family lives in Omaha, so I've been there toooons of times, and especially since having kids, the trip is usually pretty similar each time. But this time, some of our good friends - a family of four - decided to come with us, which ended up offering a new twist to our typical Omaha trip!

Five years ago, the corner of 40th and Farnam didn’t inspire much hope.

Save for a few random storefronts, the street was deserted, and many of the buildings had been boarded up. As money was poured into developing the downtown area, and businesses continued to move out west, it appeared that many locals had simply forgotten about this part of town.
