Information for Travelers
Omaha is a city in the US state of Nebraska, on the Missouri River near the Iowa border.
A pleasantly compact city center makes sightseeing in Omaha easy.
Many of the attractions can be reached on foot or are just a short drive from the city centre.
While zoos are rarely the most exciting thing to see or do in a state, the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium in Omaha is an exception.
The Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium leads conservation work and features a large feline complex as well as indoor jungle, rainforest and desert habitats.
This unique 160-acre facility is home to the world's largest indoor desert, largest indoor jungle, and largest nighttime exhibit.
The aquarium exhibits are engaging and provide opportunities to touch the stingrays as they swim.
If you're looking for something completely different, take a camel ride.

The tastefully restored buildings in this central area are home to restaurants, shops and galleries.
Nearby is the seafront, with an enchanting park and the impressive Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge.
