  • Absolutely gorgeous, but easy to get turned around.
  • Very cool, the trains by the Omaha Welcome Sign were very cool and worth the walk. Even though there were signs on the paths that said it was closed, they let us hike up there to see them. Would have liked to have explored the Gardens but the interior ones were closed because they were cleaning up after an event and it was way too cold to explore the outside ones. I'll visit again someday
