The countdown continues to the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse, and Omaha is only an hour away from some of the best viewing spots in the country. Fly into Omaha’s award-winning airport (OMA) and choose from more than 80 hotels in the metro area. Find the hotel that works for you, your budget and any special accommodations (note: more than 40 Omaha hotels welcome four-legged family members).
Before and after the eclipse, enjoy other unique experiences only offered in Omaha. Explore the world’s largest indoor desert, under the world’s largest geodesic dome, above the world’s largest nocturnal exhibit. Travel to three countries in North America’s largest indoor rainforest. Meet Bob, a tweeting, instagraming pedestrian bridge with a lot to say. Walk to the middle of Bob and you’ll be standing in two states at once. Take a selfie and you’re bobbing – trust us, it’s a thing!
No trip is complete without finding prime travel-worthy food, and Omaha serves up some legendary dishes to complete your bucketlist. Known for beef, Omaha doesn’t disappoint with juicy steaks, massive burgers and the original Reuben sandwich (yep, it was invented in Omaha).
