Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium

Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is one of the most family-friendly tourist destinations in the entire country and after visiting you will figure out why. Where else can you stroll through the world's largest man-made jungle, view sharks and other deep-sea inhabitants through a glass-enclosed, walk-through tunnel, take a Lozier IMAX Theatre adventure to the top of Mt. Everest and view hundreds of birds flying freely in a mesh aviary the size of four football fields? Thanks to the diverse landscape and rich wildlife, the zoo was accredited by the AZA (Association of Zoos and Aquariums).

General Crook House Museum

Located on the grounds of the former Fort Omaha, this beautiful home dates back to the 1800s. It is closely tied to the U.S. military, acting as headquarters for commanders during the fort's active years. A walk through the front door takes visitors back in time. Furnishings and décor hail from the Victorian era. The Victorian Heirloom Garden also stays true to history, growing flowers representative of those found in the 1880s. The garden can be reserved for private parties.

Lauritzen Gardens

Flora and fauna from around the world cover 100 acres (40 hectares) just south of downtown Omaha. Visitors do not have to be experts to appreciate beauty, because this attraction focuses on educating both children and adults. First launched in 1982, the site now features the Robert H. Storz Family Rose Garden, an arboretum and herb garden. A children's garden offers additional activities for the little ones.

Omaha Community Playhouse

Omaha is home to one of the largest community theaters in the United States. Actor Henry Fonda took this stage, as did Dorothy McGuire. Dorothy Brando also became a star here, influencing the Godfather himself, son Marlon Brando. The company stages 11 shows annually, including a holiday production of A Christmas Carol that has become an annual event for families and corporate parties. Performances run nearly year-round.

Saint Cecilia Cathedral

Opened in 1959, the imposing Saint Cecilia Cathedral is one of the largest cathedrals not just in the city, but also in the country. Built using the Spanish Revival style, the church features striking architectural details. The interiors are no less extravagant with beautiful paintings, frescoes and sculptures. The modern organ remains central to the church's varied musical program.

Boys Town

This National Historic Landmark tells a story dating back to 1917. What started as a small home for troubled and abandoned boys has grown into a campus complete with a Hall of History, All-American Rose and Biblical Gardens, the Leon Myers Stamp Center and more. Visitors can even enjoy a bit of Hollywood, as Spencer Tracy's Oscar for his portrayal of Father Flanagan in the movie "Boys Town" is on display. Boys Town is open year-round. Free guided tours are available but donations are welcome.
