We have compiled a list of the best 25 weekend trips from Omaha. Great road trip locations with unique Airbnbs, perfect for any time of year!
We have some great ideas for a quick weekend away at unique Airbnbs, all within about a 5 hour drive from our home in Omaha. They may be closer to you, or farther, but we thought they were great options, and have some fun choices of place to stay or fun activities to do near them.

Since starting this blog, Gastronom, we have been traveling all over the US, but in 2020 have been home a lot in Omaha. We always call our traveling “Spirited Travel” because we make sure to always make a visit to local breweries, wineries and distilleries! It’s always a great part of our trip, and we have quite a few great ones in Omaha!
We do judge a cool airbnb rental on style, decor, location, price and fun, special amenities they may offer. We personally love to be able to cook at least breakfast for ourselves while traveling, and while doing a quick weekend away, this is completely up to you! Equally, we love a nightcap, or a cocktail before going out to dinner, or this year, getting takeout!
You will enjoy your time away, we are sure, and we don’t think some are too terribly far away. But, we are always more than willing to drive to get where we are going! Hope you check these out and plan some time away!
