Henry Doorly Zoo – Desert Dome Courtesy of VisitOmaha

The riverfront and downtown area have benefited from more than two billion dollars in new development and is home to one of the longest pedestrian bridges ever constructed. Also downtown are the CenturyLink Center and TD Ameritrade Park, which is home to the NCAA Men’s College World Series.

Visit the world’s largest indoor desert and nocturnal exhibits along with one of North America’s largest indoor rainforests at the Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. Explore exotic locations and underground caves at Omaha zoo’s 130 acres of exhibits. See thousands of animals from across the globe in their natural habitats.

With its cobbled streets, unique shops, galleries and restaurants, the Old Market District is within walking distance to the Hilton Omaha (but you can take the hotel shuttle if you prefer). There you can sit down to enjoy one of Omaha’s famous steaks, share drinks with friends at a pub or jazz bar, or find the perfect souvenir at one of the many boutiques or galleries.
