Omaha weekend

Jump to last reply

Got a ticket to Omaha this weekend ($135 roundtrip from LAX) with a couple of casino-comped rooms. Arriving on Saturday around noon.

Saturday night at the Hilton Garden Inn in downtown Omaha (somehow this place is related to the Horseshoe Council Bluffs). Sunday night at Harrah's Council Bluffs. No particular reason I'm changing locations.

My half-formed plan is to go to the September Fest on Saturday afternoon and then to the Old Market district. Also an obligatory stop at the Horseshoe.

Sunday, maybe rent a car and to out to the Strategic Air and Space Museum. After that, I am more than half-seriously considering driving out to Des Moines to see some racing at Prairie Meadows (starts at 5PM). Then back to Council Bluffs for the night.

What is the September Fest like? Seems like a county fair inside a convention center?

If I were to take my time at the SA&S Museum how much time would I take?

I could use other recommendations for Sunday that would not include 4+ hours of flying down I80 and back.
