Omaha

Gateway to the West

A major transportation hub, Omaha was once considered little more than a stopping point on a pioneer's journey west.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Old Market and General Crook House Museum. You'll discover tucked-away gems like St. Cecilia's Cathedral and Danish Windmill Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Omaha: Desoto National Wildlife Refuge (in Missouri Valley) and Farmall-Land USA (in Avoca). There's lots more to do: get a new perspective on nature at Mangelsen Images of Nature Gallery, steep yourself in history at Kanesville Tabernacle, examine the collection at Boys Town, and stop by Old Market Candy Shop.

The Cornhusker State
Situated in the heartland of America, Nebraska is home to a large number of small rural communities and masses of farmland. The state's two main cities, Omaha and Lincoln, are abuzz with youthful energy and cultural delights. Your itinerary can include a trip to the cities' museums to learn about the state's past, or tours of the area's important pioneer and Native American sites. The state's central location means that it has been crossed by many trails, but it was the California Gold Rush of 1848-1855 that originally brought large numbers of non-indigenous people to the area. Scenic river valleys offer plenty of opportunities for outdoor vacation activities, while Nebraska's agricultural towns charm visitors with their all-American spirit.
