Visiting Omaha for a day

I plan a drive up from Kansas City, MO. on a Sunday.

Which is better a place to spend a day, Omaha or Lincoln?

Is there a scenic route or just the interstate?

What would you like to do when you come, that will help on deciding which city.

Lincoln is pretty laid back. Omaha has more hustle. Both are great places.

Really ain't much to see coming that I can think of other then the Missouri River and NE city is kinda cute with the orchards. I'm sure there is more to see, there are alot more knowledgable then I on scenic stuff:)

If you have any idea of what you want to do and when your planing on visiting the area you will get more help:)

Not sure that there is much in Lincoln to take a day trip to see....unless its football season.

Scenic route? Hmmm, not sure - if you want to take the interstate up as far as Highway 2 you can cross the river over to Nebraska City and drive up to Omaha via Highway 75....

not sure what you are looking to do but Omaha is easy to get around in and some of the popular attractions are :

The Zoo ( of course )

Lauritzen Gardens if you are into horticulture / flowers ( near the Zoo )

Downtown area - Josyln Art Museum ( Egyptian exhibit ends Sunday June 03) , Durham Heritage Museum,.

Art showing - Holiday Inn Downtown June 03. Free

Boys Town - ( not sure if they have tours Sunday though you need to check if interested ) .

Into aircraft? Strategic Air and Space museum in Ashland - west of Omaha.

The 'Taste of Omaha " June 3 Sunday ...
