Omaha

— 3 nights

Gateway to the West

A major transportation hub, Omaha was once considered little more than a stopping point on a pioneer's journey west.
Take a break from the city and head to Hitchcock Nature Center and Fontenelle Forest Nature Center. Get a sense of the local culture at Old Market and Joslyn Art Museum. Step out of Omaha to go to Missouri Valley and see Desoto National Wildlife Refuge, which is approximately 44 minutes away. There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of The Durham Museum, try your luck at Horseshoe Council Bluffs, appreciate the history behind Kanesville Tabernacle, and take in the exciting artwork at Curbside Clothing.

To find maps, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, refer to the Omaha road trip planner.

Los Angeles to Omaha is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. The time zone changes from Pacific Standard Time to Central Standard Time, which is usually a 2 hour difference. In July, plan for daily highs up to 87°F, and evening lows to 67°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sun) so you can travel back home.

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.
