What you should know about Chalco

A pretty suburb on the southwestern edge of Omaha, Chalco is a mix of tree-lined neighborhoods, brand-new business parks, verdant golf courses, and gently-rolling farmland. At its heart is a lake whose surrounding park lands and nature trails make up one of Omaha's best-loved recreational areas. With the interstate close by, it's as easy to whisk from quiet suburb to busy city as it is take an ambling road trip over the wide-open plains.

Hotels in Chalco

You'll find most of the hotels in Chalco either lying adjacent to its lake-side park—the Chalco Hills Recreation Area—or in a mixed business and retail park just off of I-80, north-west of the neighborhood. Mid-range hotel chains, like the Hampton Inn & Suites Omaha Southwest-La Vista, dominate the accommodation in Chalco. This modern and efficient hotel comes ready for daytime business—with its meeting rooms and business center—and evening unwinding—with its indoor pool and fitness center. The Holiday Inn Express & Suites Omaha I-80 lies close to the park, and receives great Chalco reviews for its spa-tub, spacious rooms, and excellent breakfasts.

Things to see in Chalco

The parks and facilities of the Chalco Hills Recreation Area lies at the heart of this suburb and overlooks Wehrspann Lake. There are soccer pitches, playgrounds, and a baseball field here. But most activity involves the lake in one way or another—strolling around its trails, paddling around its creeks, or casting a line to hook one of the many fish in its waters. Werner Park provides a distraction to those who like their sports, with the stadium being home to the Omaha Stormchasers, the city's minor league baseball team. There are also a few rural attractions as you move out of the city to the Southwest, like Vala's Pumpkin Patch. This is a great family-friendly farm experience that includes slides, mazes, and train rides. And those with kids will also love the Defy Gravity Indoor Trampoline Park, a place perfectly made for bouncing all of that energy away.

Good for families

Chalco's greatest asset is its location—just outside of Omaha's busy downtown districts, but still well-connected thanks to I-80 cutting through it, and Chalco makes a great place to stop over for those traveling through. But it can also be a good base for families and couples wanting a relaxing vacation. The neighborhood is quiet and affordable, while top-draw attractions like Henry Doorly Zoo are still within reach, just a few miles up the highway. And business travelers coming to the local commerce parks will appreciate the many efficient, modern Chalco hotels.

How to get to Chalco

Omaha can be easily driven to from Des Moines, just 2 hours away down I-80, or from Kansas City, a 3-hour trip along I-29. I-80 also offers a point of entry for destinations further west, such as Denver. Those flying in will arrive at Eppley Airfield Airport in the north of the city. Travel to Chalco from there is best done by car. First head north from the airport onto the Arthur C Storz Expressway, before merging onto US-75 S. Take exit 452 to get onto I-80 W and then stay on it until exit 440. From there just follow the signs for Chalco.
