late arrival  (6 Answers)

arriving quite late on an evening (may 2015) at the main airport and we will need lodgings for THAT one night. already have a downtown hotel booked for nights following arrival night. question: could anybody recommend a BUDGET motel nearby the airport or, say, halfway between the airport & downtown, or even on the 'fringes' of downtown- something that would be easily accessible by cab from the airport. i have looked at a number of online maps and am finding it difficult getting oriented. lodgings i have considered all seem to be located in 'far- off' areas. we will not be renting a car. any suggestions would be much appreciated. thank you !

Megabus stop  (3 Answers)

I'm thinking of stopping off in Omaha for the day to visit the zoo, old market and the Bob Kerrey bridge but if I did, I would need to get the 10pm Megabus to Chicago.
I did a quick Google search and it seems that the Crossroads Mall where the Megabus stop is located is quiet at the best of times, let alone at 10pm, so I just wondered if I am likely to be able to find the Megabus stop ok assuming there is no one around as I will be taking a bus or taxi there? And if I should be ok there as a solo traveller at that time of night?

Long-term parking  (1 Answer)

My family will be driving to Omaha and catching Amtrak there for a trip to the west coast. Would it be relatively safe to park our car at the Amtrak station for a couple of weeks? If not, do you have other recommendations for long-term parking?

omaha in september  (1 Answer)

Hi omaha,
I'm an austrian female student planing to go to omaha in sept.07 for an internship .

1)Can you give me some suggestions for cheap accomodation or is there any organisation which can help to find a guestfamily. Or can I stay in student's home on the campus of creighton university? How much do you think it would be?

2)On my free days I would like to learn as much as possible about the typical way of life in the midwest or in small rural cities, where should I go to, what should I do?

3) Where can I meet young people?

4) Because I don't want to buy a car for one month, is there any public transport system like city buses?

Thanks for answering my questions, and have a merry christmas time

Zoo - Zoo Penny Favor  (2 Answers)

Hello Omaha,

My family and I stopped at the Henry Doorly Zoo a few years ago while on our way back from a medical trip in Utah for one of our special needs children.

Our son with autism just started making and collecting zoo pennies this year, from the zoos he visits.

I would love to get him a zoo penny from the Henry Doorly Zoo and wrap it up for him for Christmas.

I'm not sure this zoo has the machine to make the pennies. But if they do and anyone is willing to make us one. I would gladly pay for the amount to have the penny done plus the shipping to send it to us here in North Dakota.

Thanks so much,
