Reed Moore’s Things to Do in Omaha on 4/20

Find more on our Things To Do page.

Visit the Always Dope Fontenelle Forest

  • 1111 Bellevue Blvd N
  • $11 for adults, $10 for seniors,
  • $8 for children 2-17, and free for members.

There’s perhaps no better way to celebrate a day of greenery than by spending it knee-deep in a forest. Fontenelle Forest is one of the greenest places you can venture in the Omaha area. It is one of Nebraska’s five national natural landmarks.

No matter how humanity progresses, the best conversations and ideas can be had while strolling through the woods. Even during the New Roaring Twenties, hiking remains beloved by many, and it could enhance your 4/20 experience and add an invaluable dimension to it called exercise.

To maximize social-distancing efforts, please renew or register your membership online. Additionally, Omaha Public Library cardholders can get free passes to Fontenelle – so sign up if you haven’t already.
