My bf and I are planning to spend several days in Omaha during the College World Series. I realize that lodging around the stadium is VERY expensive during this time...knowing nothing about Omaha, is it essential that we stay near the stadium? Is there a lot of nightlife in Omaha, restaurants/bars that we could walk to etc? Or is it worth it to pay a lot less for a hotel, but have to drive?
We are on a budget, but would like to get the most out of our trip. Any suggestions on places to eat, things to do, etc. would be appreciated....He's a high school coach and I'm a teacher...we're pretty low key...enjoy a great meal, but are just as happy with wings and good beer. I plan to visit the zoo, but don't know much else to do besides games....we're not that into theatre or anything like that...basically, just two thirty-something baseball nuts.
Thanks in advance for your help!!
