The winter months begin to get dull this time of year. We begin to crave spending more time outside in the sunshine with green plants around us. Here are a few places you can visit to tide you over until spring’s arrival.
Wander through the warm tropics at the Lauritzen Gardens Conservatory and get your plant fix. Designed to showcase the beauty of a traditional garden in the Southern United States, it’s a great place to get away from your bleak landscape. Take in all the wonderful shades of green and beautiful blooms. It can almost count as a mini vacation to the south!
Still ranked as one of the best zoos in the world, warm up at the Henry Doorly Zoo in their jungle and desert dome. You’ll almost forget it’s winter surrounded by all of the tropical plants in the Lied Jungle or in the 70 degree Desert Dome. Don’t forget to stop by the aquarium to walk on the “bottom of the ocean”.
Take a stroll through the collections at the Joslyn. It’s always free, though you may have to pay admission to see specific exhibits. Appreciate some art while spending time outside of the house. Also, stop by the Storz Fountain Court to admire the beautiful marble columns, balcony, and hand-crafted ceramic tiled fountain.
Located in downtown Omaha, this “alley” was developed 30 years ago into a series of shops and restaurants. We recommend this spot because you can enjoy the green plant life while sharing a meal or doing some shopping.
Get together with our skilled team of designers and start planning the place you want to spend all of your time in outside.

Our goal is to help you spend more days outside, sooner in the spring and later in the fall.
