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.
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
Several walking trails
An outdoor learning classroom
Outdoor musical instruments
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!
