Find a Farmer’s Market
Everything tastes better when it’s fresh from farm to table, and you can get those ingredients here in Omaha. While you most likely can’t get everything you need for the week from the Farmer’s Market, it’s double the fun to walk around the market and enjoy the people and scenery before heading to the boring grocery store. You will be able to find all kinds of goods, from fresh bakery items to blooming flowers and even home décor and jewelry, you are in for an Omaha treat.
Go for a Swim
The Omaha heat can be quite intense, and there’s no better way to cool off than a dive into a body of water. Cryer Pool Park is cannonball friendly. Or, if you’re looking for more of a lake scene, Fremont Lake is sure to impress. Fun Plex Water Park offers unmatched water games, slides, and entertainment. Don’t forget your sunscreen!
Visit World’s Largest Ball of Stamps
Did you know Omaha is home to the largest ball of stamps? That’s right. You heard it here! Head over to Boys Town to see this attraction you don’t want to miss. The kids will get a thrill out of it too.
