Top 5 travel tips for Omaha
An engineering marvel, this 3000-ft bridge is one of the world’s longest pedestrian bridges and beckons visitors to come “bobbing” – which is standing at a spot on the bridge where you’re in two states (Nebraska and Iowa) at the same time. Beneath the bridge sits Omar the Troll, an unofficial city mascot of sorts. As dusk falls, the lights on the bridge light up beautifully, and the Missouri River views are breathtaking.2. Float down the Elkhorn River
Set half a day aside for riverside pursuits down the Elkhorn River. A tubing or kayaking adventure down the idyllic 6-mile long river will take you past interesting landscapes - dirt cliffs, gorgeous rock walls, and the occasional wildlife.

Hang out with the friendly residents at the Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium
With one of the world’s largest indoor deserts and North America’s biggest indoor rain forest, Omaha’s zoo merits a visit for its commitment to the conservation of endangered species. The exhibits are stunning: stroll the sea lion shores, orangutan forests, and the African highlands, before checking out the Suzanne and Walter Scott Aquarium. The Polar Regions and coral reefs are top attractions here.5. Recharge at Zorinsky Lake and Recreation Area
A short ride west of Omaha will get you to the man-made Zorinsky Lake where you can walk miles of trails, spot wild deer, turkeys, and hawks, and soak in spectacular golden sunsets. The recreation area lends itself to fishing, boating, biking, and even horse-riding opportunities.
