Beautiful gardens in Omaha. It's very large, so I would start with the tram ride. It gives you a good overview of the Gardens. Very beautiful and well-done.

Lauritzen Gardens has alot to see!! One of the best things to do here is to take the train ride around the gardens, and, then on to the Kenefick park (the train display). Very relaxing place and, alot of plants to look at.

If you like walking about outside around beautiful plants, this is a great place to visit. If you live in the area, think of buying a membership. They make changes every year and have different activities during the months.

What an amazing secret find! Been to Omaha several times and never known about this wonderful garden. Flowers and plants everywhere. Had some really unusual foods made out of sweet corn including peppers with the corn. Would highly recommend this wonderful Hidden Gem.

At least 2 hours and it could easily be more. There's a snack bar where you can get light food.
