Summer time is here, which means the weather is warm, the kids are out of school, and it's prime time to take a vacation for some much needed R&R. Omaha, NE is one of the Midwest's most underrated cities; filled with activities, sights, sounds, and photo ops. For Subaru drivers looking to flex their Boxer engine this summer, we recommend hitting up Omaha, NE for your next vacation.

Here are the five best things you need to do this summer.

1.) Visit the Henry Doorly Zoo

Google it, and you will find that many visitors and residents of Omaha, NE instantly rate the Henry Dooly Zoo as the number one place to check out. New habitats are constantly being built, keeping the zoo fresh, and its spacious layout means you will get some great exercise. You can get some great alternative views of the park by taking the train ride and Skyfari.

2.) Explore Downtown Old Market

One of the things Omaha does well when it comes to revering its history. Old Market features old-time cobbled streets and a wealth of preserved buildings to take in and get pictures of. With eateries and shops lining the streets everywhere you look, it's easy to lose track of time when wandering around this historic part of downtown Omaha.

3.) Head out to TD Ameritrade Park and Take in a Baseball Game

The summer months bring baseball into full swing, and fans of America's past time can't pass up a chance to hit up TD Ameritrade Park. This stadium is home to the College World Series which runs from mid to late June. You'll get to see the stars of tomorrow making their name on the biggest stage in college baseball.

4.) Experience Local Landmarks

Omaha is packed full of unique local landmarks that are as interesting to photograph as they are to explore. St. Cecilia's Cathedral is a beautiful church with exquisite architecture that you can tour with one of the priests. We also recommend seeing Joslyn Castle, if you're interested in checking out local history.

5.) Go Biking

Omaha, NE has a phenomenal outdoor culture, and one of the best ways to explore the city while burning those calories is to go biking. There are several hotspots that bikers will love such as the Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge, Zorinsky Lake Park, and Stinson Park.

6.) Take Your Best Friend to Our Dog Park

At Beardmore Subaru, we love our furry companions, and we know you do too. That's why we built the Freedom Dog Park and Pet Lounge, which allows members of our community to relax with their dogs. The Freedom Dog Park is a fenced-in park that's always packed with tennis balls for throwing around. Meanwhile, the Pet Lounge is designed for customers who bring their Subaru vehicles in for service and want to bring their dog with them. There's no better way to kill time during a service appointment then spending some time with your favorite animal.
