Join me and Cameron on another Destination Rewind as we pass the time during quarantine. This time we take you to the home of the College World Series, one of the world’s best zoos and a surprisingly nice convention center. Welcome to Omaha!
The Old Mattress Factory Bar & Grill – Once a mattress factory, this space has been converted to a happening restaurant and bar, and features some delicious American fare.
Omaha Lancers Hockey Game – If you’re a sports fan, head on over to watch the Lancers take the ice! The games are well attended, and exciting plays are inevitable.
The Grey Plume – Omaha is known as a foodie town, and the Grey Plume is THE place to experience their finest cuisine. Their seasonally driven, ever changing menu features quality ingredients and a wonderful dining experience.
Homewood Suites Omaha – Consider staying at the Homewood Suites when you’re in Omaha. You’ll find very spacious rooms, and this Homewood is in a great location near the baseball stadium and great restaurants.
The Durham Museum – Trains were such an important part in the development of this country, and the Durham Museum does a fabulous job presenting intuiting facts about American trains. Along with the train exhibits and memorabilia, learn about Nebraska state history, Native American life in the region and more.
Cross the Missouri River into Iowa – Omaha is right next to the great state of Iowa, so why not visit! If you’re in the mood to gamble, I’d recommend rolling the dice at the Horseshoe Casino or one of the other nearby casinos in Iowa.
Explore Omaha – Some of the neat places around town include The Bob Kerry Pedistrian Bridge (AKA The Bob), the Lauritzen Gardens, the Henry Doorly Zoo, and the home of the College World Series – TD Ameritrade Park.
Burger Theory – A wonderful American eatery featuring delicious craft burgers, local craft beer and tons of TVs to watch your choice of sporting event.
