About Us

Welcome to The Walking Tourists

We love traveling – locally, regionally, nationally and internationally (not as often as we would like). We originally started the  site to share our experiences with friends and family.

Whether it’s across the world or in our own backyard in Omaha, Nebraska.  We are lovers of all things food, travel, and adventure! We visit various cities in search of new experiences and undiscovered treasures.  Lisa Trudell was in the travel industry for over 16 years now working for both a hotel company and later as a travel agent.  Tim Trudell is the photographer of the couple taking photos of fabulous places, people, and events.   We have traveled for business, for sporting events, extended family trips and of course for fun.  The reason for the walking tourists just indicates that we like to take our time walking to most local destinations once there to be able to discover the little things along the way.

So, come and explore with us.

    We would love for you to come and explore Abilene, Kansas. We have lots to offer, from live professional theatre at Great Plains Theatre, to the boyhood home and presidential museum and library of Dwight D. Eisenhower.

      We would love to come back to Abilene, KS. We have been there once before but know that we have much more to explore. We only visited the Eisenhower Presidential Museum and Library. We hope to come back soon. Thanks for the invite.
