“Favorite Spots in Omaha”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

This is an experience worth repeating. The garden arranges different displays of flowers throughout the four seasons, so it's really worth visiting various times a year. They always have activities and their gift shop is simply adorable. In these colder months it's also nice to see their conservatory and stop by their lovely café for something warm.

“Christmas at Lauritzen Gardens Stunning”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2014

We visited Lauritzen Gardens during Christmas break to see the holiday poinsettia show and 20 foot tall poinsettia Christmas tree and it was stunning. Great display of more than 5,000 poinsettias from 26 different varieties. Kids loved the miniature Omaha amid the flowers and the trains weaving through it all and over the bridge. Great display and perfect backdrop for holiday family photos! Can't wait to go back in the spring to see all the gardens in full bloom!

“Lauritzen Gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

As always, the various plantings are amazing. In some areas, the plantings are a bit different from year to year while others sucha s the rose garden tend to stay the same. There are changes going on right now to add new buildings and areas of plantings. The place is a joy to visit...for the WHOLE family.

“Nice garden but lots of up and down hills”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 23, 2013

Unfortunately 3 of the main areas were closed for maintenance. The garden sits on the river bluff so it is very hilly - more than I wanted to walk so we took the tram. You can see very little from the tram - it needs to allow on/off at each area and then catch the next one. It did make a stop at the rose garden and the vintage trains.
