Fun things to do in OMAHA

An exciting city filled with adventure, culture, nature and fascinating history, there are so many great places to visit in Omaha!

Think you can handle walking through a tropical jungle on a suspended rope bridge? Head to Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo!  Step back in time at the Durham Museum or into pioneer life at the Mormon Trail Center, and get those kids exploring, climbing, and creating at the Omaha Children’s Museum!

Nature calling? Omaha has beautiful spots for kids to explore with the Omaha Botanical Gardens. Perhaps it’s culture they are after? Where to go first! The Joslyn Art Museum, El Meseo Latino (the first Latino history/art museum in the midwest!) and the Love’s Jazz and Art Center are all exciting (and educational!) options for those inquisitive minds.

Don’t forget water fun for those hot summer days, like Fun-Plex Water Park and CoCo Key Water Park!

So - let’s run through the check list. Hats? Check. Camera? Check. Sense of fun and adventure? Check! We’re all good then!

When in Omaha, your fun family days out often become awesome family adventures…don’t say we didn’t warn you!
