Rarely can you put an entire city as a fun place to fly, but in this case I had to write this up. Local weather was horrible and the wife and I needed to getaway to anywhere but home. Found Omaha, NE having great weather and only a couple of hours away by air, so flew in just to check it out.

The city is one of the cleanest cities I have been in the last 5 years this is written in August 2022. The city is excellent for an adult getaway weekend or a family trip. For adults, the Old Market District has dozens of outstanding bars, speakeasy's, and restaurants to check out, all within walking distance of all the major hotel chains.

If you want to get away with your kids, a world-class Zoo, some amazing parks with outdoor music and water features, hiking and biking, and museums of all types are spread around the area.

Three airports service the Omaha area, KOMA, KMLE, and KBTA. For our first flight we flew into KOMA and used Signature Flight Services as our FBO. The staff at Signature provided us a pretty comprehensive list of things to do and they offered a $.50 off per gallon of 100LL if you fuel on the weekend. They also work with National Car Rental's FBO services to get your right to the plane. KOMA airport is a little over 3 miles to the main downtown district where all the hotels are located.

If you like craft beer, you gotta check out the Omaha Craft Beer Penny Pack, where you buy your first beer and your 2nd beer is only a penny at 13 different brew pubs in the area. A fun speakeasy is the Wicked Rabbit Bar, and if you like Tiki Bars, check out Laka Lono. Families should consider the Zoo, but plan for a full-day. Of course, anyone who flies in will likely want to check out the Strategic Air Command Museum, which is actually affiliated with the Smithsonian. For us, Omaha was never a consideration as a destination city, but this one visit has changed our minds about that. - Submitted by Spencer Hamons
