More 'Omaha!' buzz: Win a trip to see what Peyton's been yelling about

Piggybacking on quarterback Peyton Manning's Omaha shout-outs, the Omaha Convention and Visitors Bureau is embarking on a campaign to further spread the word about the city.

The visitors bureau is sponsoring a contest to win a trip to Omaha so out-of-towners can find out “what all the hype is about,” said director Dana Markel.

The Win a Trip to Omaha contest runs through Feb. 2, Super Bowl Sunday, and includes radio and online ads in Kansas City, Des Moines, Sioux Falls and Denver.

The winner will receive a two-night stay at Hilton Omaha, a $1,000 getaway package based on their interests, $150 in apparel and merchandise from the Visitors Center, and family passes to Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo & Aquarium, the Durham Museum, Lauritzen Gardens, the Omaha Children's Museum and Joslyn Art Museum ticketed events.

“When people from out of town visit our city they spend money in our hotels, restaurants, bars, attractions and retail shops, which is a win-win for all of us,” Markel said.

Locals can share the contest with out-of-town family and friends by telling them to go to to enter.
