Guided Holiday by Motorcoach
Begin your cultural experience at the German-American Society with dinner and entertainment featuring professional German dancers. Learn about traditional Ukrainian Ritual Cloths before a local guide introduces you to Omaha. Drive past Warren Buffet’s home and stop at Pioneer Courage Park to see the life-size 1850’s wagon train sculpture. Have lunch at the Polish Heritage Society and tour the 1903 Joslyn Castle, a massive 30-room stone mansion. Board the riverboat River City Star and cruise the Missouri River with an Irish buffet and entertainment. At Outlook Nebraska Inc., many employees are blind yet produce toilet paper for all the U.S. military bases. Learn about French cooking with lunch and taste Lithuanian torts before visiting St. John’s Greek Orthodox Church, for a homemade Greek dinner and traditional dance performance.
No visit to Omaha is complete without a stop at Boys Town, an actual working town and creation of Father Flanagan. The subject of the 1930’s movie starring Spencer Tracy and Mickey Rooney, you’ll see the museum, chapel and his restored 1920’s home. At the Omaha Zoo, discover the world’s largest indoor swamp, desert dome and indoor jungle and walk in a glass tube across a valley of gorillas. Also experience the traditional dances and elaborate costumes of the Ballet Folklorico Mexicano from the Aztec culture, through the Mexican Revolution to the energetic dances of today and enjoy a South American dinner.
