The Omaha Metropolitan Area (OMA) Tourism Awards is an annual tradition to honor attractions, restaurants, hotels, and retail shops that have made a difference in the lives of our visitors and residents. The public is encouraged to honor those exceptional experiences and businesses by voting for the best tourism businesses in Pottawattamie, Douglas, and Sarpy counties.
Last month, nominations were submitted in four categories: best hotel, best restaurant, best retail business, and best attraction. The top five most nominated businesses in each county now move on to the final voting phase. In the event of a tie in the nomination process, there may be more than five in a category.
Voting is now open for the best hotel, restaurant, attraction, and retail shop in Pottawattamie County, Iowa. As a reminder, Pottawattamie County includes Avoca, Carson, Carter Lake, Council Bluffs, Crescent, Hancock, Honey Creek, Macedonia, McClelland, Minden, Neola, Oakland, Treynor, Underwood, and Walnut.
