Magnolia Omaha Hotel Review

Friday, January 19, 2018 10:00 AM by Greta - Pickles Travel Blog

A comfortable, luxury hotel that is both kid and pet friendly is one of my favorite things and the Magnolia Omaha Hotel has it all! It’s so important to have a relaxing place to call home when traveling with a toddler and dog. The rooms are beautiful, family-friendly and with plenty of fun spots to explore you can easily alternate between nap time to exploring.

Omaha has so many amazing sights to see and activities to offer, from the Number One rated zoo in the country, to the union station train depot where you can board a train, to a bridge that takes you to another state. All of these are wonderful reasons to visit Omaha, but add in the holiday season and family friendly Omaha gets even better! 

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.

A Weekend in Omaha, Nebraska

Friday, February 24, 2017 8:00 AM by Our Changing Lives

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.
