About Omaha

Omaha Skyline

The Midwest is a lot more than just cornfields as far as the eye can see; there are actual cities here too, such as Omaha and Lincoln, with a lot of fun and exciting things to do. No I am not talking about finding your way through a corn maze, although if you want to you can in October at Vala’s Pumkin Patch while making your way through haunted houses as well as picking out a pumpkin from one of the many fields the hayrack ride takes you through to put on your porch for Halloween, I am talking about art museums, zoos, shopping, sports, entertainment and so much more. If you like art go visit the Joslyn Art Museum downtown. For those of you who like animals and enjoy being outdoors then you should visit the Henry Doorly Zoo, which is home to one of the largest indoor rain forests in the world and the world’s largest indoor desert and nocturnal exhibits. For those of you who enjoy shopping the Old Market in downtown Omaha would be a fun place for you to visit, with carriage rides through the cobblestone streets and many restaurants and shops to choose from you will thoroughly enjoy yourself. I bet you didn’t know that Omaha is home to the NCAA College World Series every year, baseball is one of Americas oldest pastimes and people from all over the U.S. come to Omaha to watch their favorite college team duke it out with their rivals. For those who are more into music and theatre you can go to the Quest Center and see all sorts of different performers and concerts, if you would like a more classical feel the Holland Performing Arts Center holds wonderful orchestra and choral events. Visit the Strategic Air and Space Museum and get the opportunity to step on board a true vintage World War II bomber plane and even test out what it feels like to fly a plane in the flight simulator and much more. As I said before Omaha and the Midwest are so much more than a vast array of cornfields so if you have the pleasure of visiting our wonderful part of the U.S. be sure to expect a lot more than you may have bargained for.
