You’re having the dream again. The one where you’re walking through a field of swaying cornstalks, the sun breaking through a sea of tufted clouds overhead. A breeze floats past, and a butterfly flutters over your shoulder. Bliss. Then, just as you’re about to begin skipping between the rows of golden crops, you hear his voice. One of the world’s most famous quarterbacks, alerting his squad to a play change with a familiar cry: “Omaha!”
But you’re not in the big game, you’re still in the field. What’s happening here?
Make your dream a reality when you book a stay at one of our downtown Omaha hotels. At accommodations like the Magnolia Hotel Omaha you can rest easy at night, then set off for an epic adventure in the heartland the next morning. With the smell of home-cooked food and good cheer in the air, you can’t help but have all the good feels while you’re in Omaha. Let it wash over you.
Omaha experiences the four seasons, so whether you enjoy the sun-drenched conditions of late July or the winter wonderland of December, you’re in luck. The warmest time to visit is mid-summer, when the average high temperature is a balmy 85 degrees. Break out your short-sleeved shirts and let the vitamin D bathe your skin. The coldest month in Omaha is January, when the average high temperature is a mere 35 degrees. Double up on your gloves and build yourself a snowman; whimsy and chilled noses abound in equal measure when snow blankets the earth. No matter the weather outside, when you’re in Omaha, downtown hotels are waiting to welcome you back to comfortable conditions.
There are a few things you simply must dine on while you’re in Omaha. To fulfill your epicurean duties is to taste local favorites like red beer and runza sandwiches. And then there are the steaks. The juicy, grilled-to-perfection steaks. If you’re downtown and looking for a place to get your dose of delicacies, Shucks Fish House and Oyster bar is a good place to start. Of course, Blatt Beer & Table, 801 Chophouse at Paxton, and Kitchen Table also garner excellent reviews. Close your eyes and let the abundance of butter and cheese on your plate lull you into a state of contentment only rivaled by the days of eating cotton candy at the state fair. No matter where you get your entrée, dessert places like the Bliss Old Market Bakery let you finish the meal with the perfect sweet treat.
Cheer on the Huskers, pour some V8 into a glass of lager, and count the cows on your scenic drive just outside of town. You’re practically a native Nebraskan already. Book cheap hotels in downtown Omaha, such as the Residence Inn by Marriott Omaha Downtown/Old Market Area, and you’ll see what it means to call the heartland home. Accept the hospitality and wander wisely.
