Omaha

— 2 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.
Explore hidden gems such as Sunken Gardens and Omaha Children's Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Omaha: Lincoln (Nebraska State Capitol & Hamann Rose Garden). There's much more to do: get up close and personal with brilliant marine life at Henry Doorly Zoo, steep yourself in history at Malcolm X Memorial Foundation, walk around First National's Spirit of Nebraska's Wilderness and Pioneer Courage Park, and explore the wealth of natural beauty at Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail Headquarters.

For more things to do, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, go to the Omaha visit planner.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Omaha. In August in Omaha, expect temperatures between 85°F during the day and 65°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) to allow time to travel to Portland.

Portland

— 5 nights

City of Roses

A big city with a small-town feel, Portland is home to the country's biggest rose test garden, perched on a hill overlooking downtown.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Swan Island Dahlias and Peninsula Park and Rose Gardens. Change things up with these side-trips from Portland: Horsetail Falls- Columbia River Gorge (in Hood River) and Oneonta Gorge (in Cascade Locks). Dedicate the 15th (Sun) to wine at some of the top wineries in the area. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Portland Japanese Garden, snap pictures at St. Johns Bridge, walk around Hoyt Arboretum, and appreciate the history behind Oregon Holocaust Memorial.
