  17. I went to a U2 concert there. I stayed at the double tree downtown. I went as an undergrad and went to the joselyn museum to look at the lichtenstein. They have a nice baseball park there and I walked around but there was no world series of baseball going on. They also have casinos. I like looking at the original nebraska furniture mart. My favorite thing is smelling the campbells soup factory downtown. I have eaten at a cajun place and also taken a boat ride in the downtown area. I have also toured boys town and the chapel there. I got a free ride to creighton but even with free tuiton there was no way I could afford that place.

  18. I have never stayed at a hotel in Omaha that wasn’t with a coupon or from Priceline. They have pretty good hotels from priceline. So if you are going up there, use priceline.
