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!
Welcome to Part 2 of our family’s river adventures! My last post chronicled our time in Dubuque, Iowa and the fun we found near the Mighty Mississippi River. As I indicated then, our summer was filled with many little trips canvasing one side of the state to the other. If you haven’t guessed it already, you are about to read about our time near another beautiful body of water: The Missouri River.

We received a warm welcome at the door into a rich, elegant environment. Each table was beautifully set up with the romantic ambiance of a flickering candle. They offered us the choice of black linens as we both had darker attire on instead of the basic white linen napkins. Then our server Katie asked if we prefer tap or bottled water.

OMAHA, Neb. - How Midwestern is Omaha?
It’s so Midwestern that hotel rooms come with descriptions explaining the difference between tornado watches and tornado warnings. It’s so Midwestern that several important establishments are named Ak-Sar-Ben — that’s Nebraska spelled backward. It’s so Midwestern that a pedestrian bridge spanning the Missouri River is named Bob.
In perhaps Nebraska’s most innovative and entrepreneurial city, the changes are balanced by the constants: music, art, cuisine — and, of course, Warren Buffett.
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. We have made this trip on multiple occasions, and it seems that we always find plenty to keep us busy. 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.

You might not think there’s much happening in the so-called flyover city of Omaha, but those who’ve been here know there’s a whole lot more than cornfields and cows.
The largest city in Nebraska is as friendly as any other in the Midwest with a bustling historic district, impressive foodie scene, and plenty of fun to be had for both parents and kids alike.
