Enjoy a Free and Fun Date Night

You can travel to Omaha as a couple and still stick to your budget, as there are plenty of free things to do in the city. The Joslyn Art Museum, for example, offers free admission. You and your special someone can spend hours perusing the artwork on display and enjoying quality time together. Other free things to do include checking out the trains at Kenefick Park, talking a walk on the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge and visiting the Mt. Vernon Gardens. 

Dine at a Romantic Restaurant in Downtown Omaha

Many of the restaurants in Downtown Omaha are known for their romantic atmospheres. Some of the best restaurants for couples in Omaha include The District, Shucks Fish House and Oyster Bar, and 801 Chophouse at Paxton. 

Visit a Local Omaha Attraction

The best way to experience the city is to visit some of its most popular attractions with that person who means so much to you. The Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is an awesome place for couples to explore together, as there are many unique species and ecosystems to discover. Adventurous couples may prefer to walk one of the many trails at the Fontenelle Forest. 

Head to a Winter Festival or Event

During the winter, there are many annual festivals and events that are wonderful options for couples who are visiting the city. The 2019 Winter Solstice Yule Ball takes place in late December and is a fun and festive way to enjoy the holiday season.
