New Tour in 2019: Parks and Boulevards
Did you know that Omaha, or “River City,” developed a beautiful parks and boulevard system beginning in the late 1800s? In fact, much of this system remains today linking popular parks like Elmwood and Hanscom with gorgeous tree-lined streets such as Happy Hollow and Lincoln Boulevard. Our new “Parks and Boulevards” tour will take you along the path developers laid out so many years ago. Tour dates to be announced—check back soon.
Tours run 1-1/2 to 2 hours long depending on the tour.
