  • Lovely walk around this pond. The waterfall feature near Conagra is pretty. Water fountain is not on in late fall. You will feel a bit of mist from it depending on the wind, but it was a nice relief when I went! Nice view of the Omaha skyline as well! There is a look out area over the river behind the park that is accessible by a small bridge on the west side.
  • Beautiful wildlife at a peaceful park in the heart of Omaha. This park is family friendly visit during the day or evening too see their incredible fountains in action! Preferably the evening if you’d like a light show along with it. Also try the gondola rides around the lake. Good spot in Omaha.
  • There are tons of people always walking around this place. There's so much to look at especially in the winter time with all the lights! You can take someone there on a date and walk around or you can go eat at one of the hundred restaurants within a couple square blocks radius of the park. Personally, I like to just stay at the skyscrapers and look up the lights shining on them.
  • Fantastic park! Absolutely gorgeous and looks truly amazing in the winter when all the lights are lit up! Great walking/jogging trails, extremely impressive fountain, and there are even slides there for young and old alike!
  • Cheddars is fantastic! Lots of food for a very reasonable price. Two warnings: 1. This place is popular. There is almost always a wait to be seated. 2. For the buffalo chicken lovers, I'm pretty sure their "buffalo" sauce is just a regular hot sauce like Franks or something (all spice and no buffalo flavor).

Where to stay in Omaha

Not surprisingly for a city of its size, Omaha has a diverse range of accommodation options to suit a variety of tastes and budgets. A hotel close to downtown is usually more expensive, but enables guests to experience the best of Omaha's nightlife, shopping, and dining on foot. An apartment rental in one of the city's vibrant residential neighborhoods might be a good choice if you are planning a longer stay in the city. You'll find national chain hotels and motels in many of Omaha's suburbs.
