Visit the Henry Doorly Zoo. ...
Visit the Henry Doorly Zoo. The photo to the left is a white alligator (yes, it's real, it was moving.) You've probably heard about the zoo countless times, but it's for a good reason. This place is incredible. I cannot fathom how a city of this size can support a zoo like this. In 2002, the Desert Dome opened to the public. The Desert Dome is the world's largest glass geodesic dome, and contains an indoor desertscape, and when complete will have an underground level where nocturnal animals will live on a 12-hour rotated schedule for people to view while active. The aquarium is world class, with a walk through tunnel where sharks and rays swim above your head, and an incredible natural-habitat penguin display. The HDZ is also home to the world's largest indoor rainforest, the USA's second largest aviary, etc... Be sure to bring comfortable shoes, as you will walk around for hours. When I'm not in Omaha, I miss the people. Omaha has a very unusual culture, not something you would notice at first, but when visiting other Midwestern cities, there is just something less genuine about the way people interact.
The name "Bellevue" came from an early French explorer; it refers to "la belle vue", or the lovely vistas overlooking the Missouri River. This is a small town, now a suburb of Omaha, whose southern side flanks Offutt Air Force Base.
There is not a lot here, but the town has a few nice parks (notably Fontenelle Forest), and you can take a boat ride on the Missouri.
The city government is at this address:

generic stir fry
why they call it Mongolian is beyond me, isnt that a deception? the owners from Vietnam where the food is about 100 times better than what they offer in their stir fry. most of the workers including the guys at the fry are mexican.
ethnicity sold as commerce i suppose you can choose the meat and vegetables ( a very limited selection ) and then add the sauces you wish and hand it over to the mexican, who will within minutes will hand you back stirfried meal ..some peanuts on top if you like
i dont think this place is anything superior but certainly beats the pizza points and the burger joints in this part of town
Get up close and personal with elk, bison and cranes from the safety and comfort of your car.

VISIT THE CASINOS
LOCALS WILL SAY "VISIT THE RIVERBOATS" and that means casinos. Thats because two of the three casinos are on riverboats.
Technically they are not in Omaha, not even in Nebraska. But they are right next door, on the eastern shore of the Missouri River, which is in Iowa.
