While Omaha is the largest city in the state of Nebraska, it’s not exactly known as a tourist town. That shouldn’t stop you from taking some time to explore this midwest metropolis if given the opportunity though! With the world class Henry Doorly Zoo, the NCAA Men's College World Series, the Reuben Sandwich, AND Warren Buffett calling it “home”, it’s got more to offer than just cows and corn husks. We had the privilege of visiting Omaha for a quick day trip and and decided to put together this “One Day in Omaha” travel itinerary for anyone who might be looking to find adventure in the Cornhusker State!
