AOL Travel Editor’s Review

Located on a hillside overlooking the Missouri River Valley, this 100-acre garden features 20 distinct gardens, many of which are beautiful all 12 months of the year. The Model Railroad garden, a delight for children, salutes Omaha’s rail history, while highlighting the architectural heritage of the city with authentic scale buildings. However, children also have a garden all their own, as do rose lovers, bird lovers, and chefs (in the herb garden). The visitor’s center includes a small café in a plant-filled atrium, a gift shop for gardeners, and conference areas. The tranquility of the garden is occasionally lost in the noise from the nearby interstate, but the birds, butterflies and aroma of roses do their best to offset any stressful reminders of a busy city.
