Okay – time for some photos, let’s revisit some of our favourite memories from our time in the mid-west. Oh, and if you’re looking for more ideas, check out the Omaha Visitor’s Centre – they’re so kind and helpful.
The eats! I love corn, without a doubt, it’s one of my favourite foods. We celebrated our 11th wedding anniversary on our trip and had a delightful dinner at the Boiler Room. This dish below was one of our favourites of the trip.
Old market in downtown Omaha is beautiful – if you don’t stay in this area, you should definitely visit. We visited the farmer’s market, the artists cooperative gallery, and the River Front is right around the corner. With brick streets and historic buildings, it’s fun to just walk around and explore.
Here’s a view from our hotel and you can see the River Front on the far side of the street. Such an inviting place for people to gather!
A highlight of the trip was feeding the giraffes at their habitat. Check out this photo – doesn’t it look like fun?!
Well, there you have it – a few things to do, where to stay, what to eat, and how to get around Omaha! We found four days to be the perfect amount of time – nice balance between doing things, relaxing, and enjoying the visit.
Okay – here’s one last photo of us (yes, it’s dark, thanks to the photographer!)
Thanks so much for stopping by! See you again soon – and Happy New Year – all the best in 2023!
