Bloggers From Omaha – Alissa Apel

Kim’s note: This is the 15th installment in a series introducing different voices from around Omaha. Each week Whenever I can, I’ll introduce a different Omaha blogger, what his or her blog is all about, and since I love getting recommendations as much as I love giving them, I’ve asked each person to share some Omaha tips. Today’s blogger, Alissa, is a prolific writer of a variety of topics – you never know what she’ll write about next! I’ve reread some of her posts to help plan trips! Hope you enjoy getting to know all the bloggers from Omaha!
