Here’s what you probably know about Omaha, Nebraska: There’s a big zoo. There are lots of cows. It’s about a three-hour drive from Kansas City. Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and aquarium is regarded as one of the best zoos in the world.
Nebraska is the second-largest beef producer in America, coming in right behind Texas. And the drive will take you about the time it takes to get halfway through a true crime podcast.
But there’s so much more to this oft-overlooked city, from the quirky bars and vintage shops to the rich art scene — and some of the very best sushi you’ll find without hopping on a plane.
