Omaha might be "somewhere in middle America" according to the Counting Crows but all eyes will be on the Midwestern city this weekend as big-time investors in Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway Inc. attend the company's annual shareholders meeting at the Century Link Omaha Convention Center.
This meeting is so powerful folks will pay just over a $120,000 for one share in Berkshire Hathaway (the most expensive stock on the NYSE) solely so they can attend this meeting and rub shoulders with Buffett and board members like Bill Gates, Charlie Munger and Walter Scott, Jr. etc.*
Saying that "Omaha has more to offer than meets the eye", Liz has detailed some of her must-see and must-dos for the traveler with a little downtime in Omaha.
(Oh and it doesn't hurt that for her first time in town, she was given a grand tour by Warren Buffett himself.)

According to reports, a baby bonnethead shark, born at the Omaha zoo back 2001, was recently found to have been the product of "virgin birth," the first time such a birth has been confirmed in a shark. However, before y'all rush out to the Omaha Zoo to see the jesus shark, you should know the baby was killed soon after birth by a stingray kept in the same tank. Coincidence, zoo conspiracy, or just a case of an evil stingray?
