Gateway to Midwestern Adventure
Once you’ve arrived, rent a car in Omaha and take a day trip to Ponca State Park. Channel your inner explorer as you follow the route of Lewis and Clark along a rare, untamed stretch of the Missouri River. You may even catch a glimpse of wild turkeys or elk from your kayak or horse. Do you prefer manmade wonders? Omaha has plenty of offerings for you. View masterpieces at the Joslyn Art Museum, including an 8-foot-tall rainbow sculpture by famed glass artist Dale Chihuly, as well as works by Monet and Pollack.
From trains to anime to chocolate, Omaha is a popular destination for conferences and events of all types. In the summer, the festival scene explodes with local flavor. Attend the Nebraska Balloon and Wine Festival for tantalizing Midwest barbecue, original folk art, and delicious local vino. In the fall, the festivities continue with open-air markets, corn mazes, and pumpkin-related contests from carving to pie eating. And around the holidays, visit Lauritzen Gardens for a poinsettia extravaganza. No matter when you travel, your Omaha vacation is destined for success.
