Have Fun Seeing the Sights of Omaha


Omaha is located in the farthest eastern region of central Nebraska. This is Douglas county, which was incorporated in the middle 1800s. Omaha is approximately 130 square miles and is equipped with intriguing locations for monuments, local attractions, events, and interesting weather patterns for hot air balloon lovers and aviation enthusiasts. Chiefly, a land mass with 3.5 square miles of water at 1000 ft. above sea-level gives outdoors lovers and photographers perfect opportunities to catch amazing, scenic views of this city’s landscaping. The famous Missouri River runs along in Omaha—the largest city in Nebraska—about 10 miles north of the Platte River. This particular river serves as the border between Omaha and Council Bluffs, Iowa, thereby making Omaha the “Gateway to the West.” Also, there are over 1.3 million residents in the area with a downtown that stretches out in a 50-mile radius from Omaha’s city center.

The sky is usually clear in Omaha, but the temperatures tend to change from good and warm to freezing. Locally, January and July are still the most extreme months of this year. Unfortunately, those two vary from hot days in the hundreds, furnishing severe thunderstorms, to January’s freezing temperatures.

For scenic views, you can easily spot bridges, zoos, cathedrals, and parks with ease from our hot air balloon. For example, you can float over toward the east side of Omaha to overlook the views of the zoo then mozy further over to see the Missouri River. This type of variation in scenery may inspire conversations amongst yourself and your colleagues and pilot. Ask the pilot to take you somewhere to enjoy the views of special monuments and parks, he/she is sure to know where to find the most impressive viewpoints available over Omaha.
