There was never a doubt in my mind that I was going to adore Omaha after doing just a smidgen of investigating. Trust me when I say the city is a hidden gem.
My initial purpose was to explore the cobblestone streets of the Old Market; however, I quickly discovered Omaha offers an abundance of activities above and beyond this district.
Omaha is a marvelous destination for solo travelers, families, and everyone in between. The city offers fantastic eateries, charm, and top-notch entertainment. The vast amount of art in the city had me on cloud nine.
Please check out my individual posts for the Joslyn Art Museum, Hot Shops Art Center, the Benson neighborhood and downtown area (which I define as a playground for adults).
