Visit Council Bluffs

Located on the banks of the Missouri River and just steps away from the Omaha metro area, Council Bluffs has quickly evolved into one of the Midwest’s best places to visit. We’ve got a rich history, numerous events and attractions and a Midwestern charm we’re confident will woo you.

There’s a little something for everyone here. If you’re looking for a scenic and relaxing vacation, we’ve got it. Explore miles upon miles of trails surrounded by the natural beauty of the Loess Hills, Missouri River or Lake Manawa. If you’re looking for arts and culture, we’ve got that too. We’re surrounded by more history than we know what to do with and we think you’ll enjoy browsing one of our many art galleries.

Not sure what you’re in the mood for? Take a leisurely stroll down our historic 100 Block to visit local boutiques, restaurants or the Farmer’s Market. Download a Visitors' Guide
