Top Things To Do For Valentine’s Day In Omaha (2024)

Valentine’s Day can be as big or as low-key as you want in Omaha. In fact, many early February events planned involve Galentine’s Day themes or completely platonic hearts and crafts. If you want an extra romantic Valentine’s Day, though, you’ll need to start planning early so read on. And if you just want an excuse for a sweet treat or drink, that’s on this Valentine’s Day list, too.

Valentine’s Day 2024 is on a Wednesday, so many people are going to plan dates for either that day (the 14th) or for the weekend before. With that in mind, if it’s possible to make a reservation, I highly recommend making that reservation at least two weeks in advance.
