Child playing outside in the Summer

 

The summertime is jam-packed with options to get out of the house and enjoy time with your family and community. In fact, there’s almost too much to do, making it both hard to choose and hard on the budget. Luckily, there is no shortage of free and low-cost activities during the coming months in the greater Omaha area. Whether your pleasure is a film, live music, parades or community gatherings, our list should provide you with plenty of options.

Also, we’d be remiss in not mentioning that your local library has some wonderful events for people of all ages. We strongly recommend visiting the following links to learn what else Omaha and the surrounding cities have to offer:
