We have actually traveled to Omaha, Nebraska 4 times in three years but knew this would probably be the last for awhile and wanted to enjoy some of our favorite places and experience some new things too. I recapped our first few days including a trip to Lauritzen Gardens and Kennefick Park in last weeks post which you can read here.
We met up with the boys at Upstream Brewery for a cold beer and some snacks. We ate dinner here after the first CWS game as well and I really like the food and service.
We moved to the Doubletree Downtown which was the team hotel. It is an older hotel but it was definitely clean, the staff was friendly and the beds were comfortable. Did I mention they have fresh baked chocolate chip cookies pulled straight from the warmer ANY TIME you want one! My kids thought this was the bomb. They also had an indoor pool which was a plus. I loved that we could walk everywhere we needed to go or they also had a shuttle available.
While we were biking Carly was having a great time sliding down the big slide in the Gene Leahy Pedestrian Mall area.We had a great time in Omaha! If you have been around the blog at all you know I’m not much on sitting still so when I travel I really try to explore as much about the town as possible. After four visits I would say we hit a lot of the high points of Omaha and there is so much more than just baseball!
One thing we didn’t do this trip was cross the Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge but if you ever visit Omaha it is a must. You actually can stand on two states at once in the middle of the bridge and I think it’s cool even though my family thinks it’s overrated. Here is my picture from last year!
Hopefully you enjoyed this little visit to Omaha!
