Smack dab in the middle of the country, Omaha is easy to get to from all directions and a great long weekend destination you probably haven’t considered. Here’s what to do once you’re there.

What to see:

  • Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium has a lot going for and it’s no wonder it’s considered one of the best. For instance, it has the largest indoor aquarium in a zoo, North America’s largest indoor rainforest, the world’s largest indoor desert, features more than 160 acres of plants, animals and global habitats Children’s Adventure Trails and one of Omaha’s largest playgrounds.

A Tale of Two Rivers: Part 2

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.

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.
