Sometimes the most profound things are found in the most unassuming places, like a precious pearl in the shell of a humble oyster. You go about your day, perfectly content with the sublime reality that surrounds you. Every once in a while, though, you spot something that catches your attention and makes you appreciate that the unexpected is a gift. When these moments arise, treasure them. In fact, seek them out whenever possible. Search for the astonishing. Be on the lookout for the unanticipated. And, prepare for the unpredictable. Vacations are a perfect opportunity to find fortuitousness in the mainstream. Any holiday is a getaway from the daily grind, but only a few destinations can make you rethink your preconceived notions about a place. In America’s heartland lies one of those cities. Where can you find champagne on tap, world-class sculpture, and…the world’s largest ball of stamps? Enter the weird and wonderful world of Omaha, Nebraska. Well-known for its love of baseball and steak, Omaha also has such eclectic claims to fame as being the birthplace of the Reuben sandwich and Malcolm X. With Travelocity’s Omaha package deals, see the sights by day, then gaze at the stars under the wide-open sky by night. When you bundle your airfare and hotel together for a vacation package in Omaha, you’ll save enough to experience one unpredictable event after another.
Whether you will be traveling for business, planning a family vacation in Omaha, or attending the College Baseball World Series, finding the right hotel is an important component of your travel plans. Here are some of our favorite hotels in Omaha:
Regency Lodge – Set west of downtown, yet still very close to all area attractions, the Regency is a true rustic lodge disguised as a full-featured resort. The stone and wood décor are reminiscent of a craftsman cabin, but the amenities are those of an upscale hotel. Play 18 holes on the property’s golf course, unwind with a session in the sauna or Jacuzzi, then curl up with a book from the on-site library.
Sheraton Omaha Hotel – Minutes from Omaha’s premier attractions like the Henry Doorly Zoo, CenturyLink Convention Center, and Old Market, the Sheraton makes a great home base for exploring the area. With 10,000 newly redesigned square feet of meeting space, the Sheraton is a superb venue for your business event, and the well-appointed guestrooms are the perfect retreat after a long day seeing the sights or sealing the deals.
Magnolia Hotel Omaha – Built in 1923 to serve as a court building, the historic property is now home to one of Omaha’s finest boutique hotels. The landmark Magnolia pampers its guests in upscale opulence in a distinguished, refined setting. With all of downtown at your doorstep, you are free to roam the city before returning for an award-winning dinner at The Lounge restaurant.
Hilton Omaha – Just across the street from the CentryLink Convention Center, and a short saunter from Lewis and Clark Landing and the Old Market, the Hilton is close to all of Omaha’s action. Fuel up to start your day with breakfast at the Liberty Tavern Restaurant, go discover some of Omaha’s hidden gems, then end your day with a rejuvenating night’s sleep in your stylish, oversized guest suite.
Gateway to Midwestern Adventure
Once you’ve arrived for your vacation in Omaha, rent a car and take a day trip to Ponca State Park. The wise wanderer in you will be thankful. Channel your inner explorer as you follow the route of Lewis and Clark along a rare, untamed stretch of the Missouri River. You may even catch a glimpse of wild turkeys or elk from your kayak or horse. Do you prefer manmade wonders? Omaha has plenty of offerings for you. View masterpieces at the Joslyn Art Museum, including an 8-foot-tall rainbow sculpture by famed glass artist Dale Chihuly, as well as works by Monet and Pollack. No trip to Omaha would be complete without a pit-stop at Homy Inn for a flute of champagne or a wineglass of sangria—both remarkably served on tap.
From trains to anime to chocolate, Omaha is a popular destination for conferences and events of all types. In the summer, the festival scene explodes with local flavor. Attend the Nebraska Balloon and Wine Festival for tantalizing Midwest barbecue, original folk art, and delicious local vino. In the fall, the festivities continue with open-air markets, corn mazes, and pumpkin-related contests from carving to pie eating. And around the holidays, visit Lauritzen Gardens for a poinsettia extravaganza. No matter when you travel, your Omaha vacation is destined for success.
