Vacation at Home

By Melanie Stewart

Temperatures have been on the rise and summer is in full swing!  Did you know that spending time in nature is great for kids and adults and can improve health?  Lots of people are considering saving money and being green by taking a “staycation” so what’s a nature-loving person or family supposed to do in and around Omaha?

Most of you are probably aware of options like the Henry Doorly Zoo and Lauritzen Botanical Gardens, but LiveGreen would like you to know there are LOTS of options in and around this area: hiking, biking, fishing, bird watching, trains, camping, relaxing, there’s something for everybody.  Everything below is linked to easily allow you to find details and make plans for your weekends or staycations (and some have day camps for kids and teens):

Have fun and enjoy your summer!
