A special place to visit in Omaha, NE is the Heartland of America Park and Fountain. Take a walk hand in hand with your sweetheart past the Lewis & Clark Interpretive exhibits, WWII and Airborne Memorial Sculptures and a turn down the pedestrian bridge to the Lewis & Clark Landing.

Omaha has a few tour options, including a brew bus tour, hot air balloons and cycling tours, but I think my favorite is seeing the river-side of the city. You can do this in a gondola and have a unique romantic experience or you can do this by riverboat, also a memorable experience. If boating isn’t your passion, you and your love can take a walking tour of the city to see Old Market, breweries, vineyards and more.
