Called the town with the “beautiful view” when it was founded in the 1830s, Bellevue is a city lying 8 miles south of Omaha, nestled against wooded low hills. Once a fur trading town, today it's famed for its University and the large U.S. Air Force base that's home to the nation's Strategic Air Command. It's also a city of firsts, being the first town, the first state capital, and the first to city have a highway in Nebraska.

Things to see in Bellevue

As a venerable little city, there are several remnants of its illustrious past to see here—although much was lost after the fur boom of the 1850s ended. Bellevue's Olde Towne is the place to go, its fur trapper's log cabin being a particular claim to fame. Dating back to the 1830s, many believe that this is the oldest building left standing between the Missouri and the Pacific. The Old Towne also has a Presbyterian Church which dates back to 1856. For culture, Bellevue is known for its highly-rated amateur dramatics and musical productions, which are hosted at the Bellevue Little Theater. Lastly, if you want to discover how Bellevue got its name, a visit to the Fontenelle Forest is in order. This 1,400-acre area of wooded bluffs is where the first fur traders came. They were so impressed with the “beautiful view” over the Missouri plains that they decided to make it the name of their settlement.

Good for couples

As a quiet, well-to-do town—surrounded by pretty countryside and with oodles of historic charm—Bellevue makes a great location to plan a romantic trip. The Olde Towne provides an alluring backdrop, and also has some fine restaurants and Bellevue hotel deals. There are a number of upmarket shopping arcades here, where stores selling locally-made crafts and boutique fashions provide an incentive to linger around searching for that perfect present. And specialist events venues in Bellevue make the most of the town's pretty views, able to host any romantic occasion you have in mind.

How to get to Bellevue

Despite being a little way out of metropolitan Omaha, Bellevue is easy to reach from the city's main airport at Eppley Airfield provided you have rented a car, which is also a great way to travel in Bellevue. On leaving the airport, take the road north, along the Arthur C Storz Expressway, until it merges with US-75S. After a few miles you'll need to merge onto I-480S, which tracks through central Omaha, before picking up US-75S again to head out toward Bellevue. The main hotels here are found either side of US-75 at exit 370.
