Omaha

— 4 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.
Get out of town with these interesting Omaha side-trips: Lincoln (Nebraska State Capitol, Sunken Gardens, &more), James Arthur Vineyard (in Raymond) and Cellar 426 Winery (in Ashland). There's much more to do: meet the residents at Henry Doorly Zoo, snap pictures at Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and explore the world behind art at Joslyn Art Museum.

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.
