Lincoln

Lincoln is the capital of the U.S. state of Nebraska and the county seat of Lancaster County. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Sunken Gardens and Museum of American Speed. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Lincoln: Ashland (Cellar 426 Winery & Eugene T. Mahoney State Park). There's lots more to do: ponder the world of politics at Nebraska State Capitol, have fun and explore at Lincoln Children's Museum, take in nature's colorful creations at Hamann Rose Garden, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Lee G. Simmons Conservation Park and Wildlife Safari.

Side Trip

Omaha

Gateway to the West

A major transportation hub, Omaha was once considered little more than a stopping point on a pioneer's journey west.
Kids will enjoy Henry Doorly Zoo and The Durham Museum. And it doesn't end there: get a taste of the local shopping with Old Market, have fun and explore at Omaha Children's Museum, stroll around Heartland of America Park, and admire the masterpieces 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.
