Old Market Passageway. Fun shops and a few great restaurants. Some nice colourful bears at Omaha zoo :-) The Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge is the longest pedestrian bridge to cross two states, stretching from Nebraska to Iowa over the Missouri River. Lewis and landed at this location while exploring the American West. One of the most beautiful aquariums in the United States with a walkthrough underwater tunnel and hundreds of species of aquatic life. #aquarium #zoo #Omaha #Nebraska #aquatic An old rotary jail that was in use from 1885-1969 and now a museum. The Squirrel Cage Jail is notorious for paranormal activity and offers ghost tours and investigations. #history #jail #paranormal #haunted View of Omaha walking around the Old Market area. Riverboat rides down the Missouri River, and under the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian bridge which spans the Nebraska and Iowa border. TripAdvisor's #1 Zoo in America! I've had the amazing experience of interning and working at this zoo, and I never grow tired of walking around the insanely awesome exhibits.

#localgem Take a ride on a variety of horse drawn carriages in Omaha's Old Market District. Walk the trail in this park to see the memorial sculptures like this one to WWII veterans and others to Airborne veterans. #Green Take this pedestrian bridge from Lewis and Clark Landing and Riverfront Park over to the Heartland park, then over to the Old Market district. Nice day for a swim and some photos. Just a beautiful day. These giant groupers hung out and kept interacting with my girls. So much fun watching them. One of the largest indoor cat complexes in North America. Located below the Desert Dome, this is the largest nocturnal exhibit in the world and also contains's the world's largest indoor swamp. Other highlights include a journey through a large wet cave, a dry bat cave, and a Eucalyptus Forest. #omaha #zoo The Boiler Room. Love how they utilized the original boiler room of the building and kept the beams and brick. Innovative and creative dishes. Enjoy a walk or bike ride on the riverwalk and this cable-stayed pedestrian bridge over the Missouri River. #Green Walk around the Old Market brick lined streets, shop, dine on an outdoor patio, take a horse driven carriage ride, and enjoy the last days of summer. A must stop in Omaha, go to visitor center first to see exhibits, film, gift shop, and talk to the park ranger. Then stroll or bike ride on the riverwalk, splash pad, garden, and Bob Kerrey pedestrian bridge for good views of the city and Missouri river. #EndlessSummer Nice park with trails, memorial sculptures, benches, and this fountain that sprays at intervals like Old Faithful Geyser. #Green #EndlessSummer What at first looked like people out enjoying a day at this nice park turned out to be people looking at their phones playing Pokemon in the park. #Green After seeing Lewis and Clark sites at the nearby visitor center, walk or bike on this bridge over the Missouri River connecting Nebraska and Iowa, with view of Miller's Landing. Note the two love padlocks couples placed on the bridge, modeled after the padlocks placed on Pont des Arts bridge in Paris, France. #EndlessSummer Thought this turned out good of the sting ray pond in the Lied Jungle. Shortly after this was taken we got to watch the keepers feed the penguins. Got lucky with this shot of mom and her 1 month old pup. Walk downtown by this bronze and stainless steel sculpture park of stampeding bison celebrating the city's pioneer history. Also see the adjacent Pioneer Courage Park sculptures. You can straddle the Nebraska-Iowa border on the bridge that straddles the Missouri River.
