Things to see in Northwest Omaha
Northwest Omaha may not have the vibrant attractions of the city's downtown districts, but it can count on the simple pleasures of suburban life. Its bowling alleys, busy malls, and endless stretches of golfing fairway provide plenty of scope for fun and distraction. There are some intriguing local attractions too, a highlight being Boys Town. Now a thriving suburban village with a “small town” vibe, Boys Town grew up around the visionary children's home set up by local priest, Father Flanagan. A museum, garden, and historic house tell his fascinating story. Strangely, pride of place here is given to the bizarrely impressive “World's Largest Ball of Stamps.” Heron Haven is a spring-fed wetland nature reserve just off Dodge Road, where you can see frogs, rare plants, and all manner of birds—including herons, of course. And an intriguing angle on the environment is taken at the OPPD Arboretum, where the interaction of landscaping and electrical safety is explored.
Good for business travelers and those traveling through
As a mainly residential area, Northwest Omaha's main draw for the visitor lies with its connections, both to the wider area and to the business and downtown districts of central Omaha. It's especially well-located for those coming here to attend or do business with the city's universities, colleges, and business parks, as these are only a short drive away. The major intersection of I-680 and US-6 is close by, adding to its links, and making a stay over at a Northwest Omaha budget hotel very attractive for those on the move.
How to get to Northwest Omaha
Most visitors arriving here from out-of-state fly into the city's Eppley Airfield Airport.

The journey from the airport usually takes less than half an hour, following the long curve of I-680 round Omaha's northern flank.
