A Fun Fall Weekend Getaway

Leave a comment

Are you looking for a great fall weekend little getaway?  When our children were younger we rarely managed a big full blown vacation so we settled for smaller “get-away” trips.  We would have loved this trip as an option.

Mary Rigdon recently took her family on a weekend trip to the Omaha Zoo.


Henry Doorly Zoo – Omaha Nebraska

If you haven’t been before you have probably heard it is a fabulous zoo.  For young children a Zoo is a perfect outing.  Just three short hours away you can begin a great family experience.

Mary also found a gem in Nebraska City, Nebraska.  It is the Arbor Day Farm.  It is about mid-way between Omaha and Olathe.

A few unique feature that you might enjoy include:

A 50 foot tree house


An outdoor block area complete with a variety of unique types of blocks for building amazing structures

Outdoor musical instruments

and more!

There is also a lodge that you can stay in on the grounds.  They have special events as well such as the Apple Jack Festival on September 21st.  I checked and there are still a few rooms available for this fall!

Let us know if you venture out to one of these fun locations.  We’d love to hear about it!
