Omaha ©
A major transportation hub, Omaha was once considered little more than a stopping point on a pioneer's journey west.
Kids will enjoy The Durham Museum and Room Escape Games. Step out of Omaha to go to Papillion and see Prairie Queen Recreation Area, which is approximately 6 hours away. There's still lots to do: admire the natural beauty at Lauritzen Gardens Omaha's Botanical Center, get your game on at Craft Axe Throwing- Omaha, get a taste of the local shopping with Old Market, and identify plant and animal life at Fontenelle Forest Nature Center.

To see reviews, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Omaha sightseeing planner.

Houston to Omaha is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Traveling from Houston in December, expect Omaha to be colder, temps between °F and °F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Mon) early enough to drive to Lincoln.
