Gateway to the West

A major transportation hub, Omaha was once considered little more than a stopping point on a pioneer's journey west.
Omaha is known for zoos & aquariums, shopping, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: meet the residents at Henry Doorly Zoo, stroll around Heartland of America Park, take in the views from Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, and explore the world behind art at Joslyn Art Museum.
