Omaha, Nebraska is about an 8+ hour drive in the motorhome from the Chicago area but we decided to do it in just one day. Of course, that drive MUST include a stop in Iowa at the largest truck stop known as The Iowa 80. It’s quite a large and interesting place, similar to a Buc-EEs gas station. There are multiple restaurants, including a buffet and lots of gifts and items to buy. Its always fun to stop at a place like this.

While at Omaha, we visited the Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge which connects Iowa and Nebraska. It’s actually part of the National Park system and it has it’s very own troll (s) that live under the bridge. From there, we had a favorite for lunch, a corndog, then went to “Mixins” and had rolled ice cream for dessert. We walked around Pioneer Courage Park where bronze statues depict life for the pioneers heading west – not always such “happy trails”!

We only stayed in Nebraska for two nights but we definitely enjoyed our time in Omaha. Tomorrow we’ll be heading south to Kansas. We’ll be staying just two nights again in the Wichita area……until we meet again, HAPPY TRAILS!!
