The Heartland of America Park
It's been a long time since I blogged about anything or visited any of my favorite blogs, and for that I apologize. It's been a busy month with work and I predict more business in June. I do, however, feel guilty about not sharing our Omaha discovery with you all, so I thought I'll show you some pictures we took of the Heartland of America Park, the first site we visited in Omaha.
Omaha's downtown public park is just the Missouri River throw away from Iowa, and offers nice views of Omaha's skyline and a green, peaceful retreat from the city. A famous landmark is the Heartland's fountain with its 300-feet water jet.
The park is also home to Airborne and WWII Memorial Sculptures.
We saw a sign for "Gondola Rides" that will be available in June, and then I saw this fountain that reminded me of Venice. Aha, found a way to connect with Italy even from the Heartland of the U.S. :)
