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 worked in the travel industry for over 16 years, initially working for a hotel company and later as a travel agent. She has co-created the community Midwest Travel Bloggers, which connects travel writers and tourism professionals to promote the Midwest. She has spoken at several conferences including Type-A Parent, TBEX (Travel Bloggers Exchange) and WITS (Women in Travel Summit). Today, her full-time job is as an Online Marketing Specialist for the Home Health Care Company Right at Home. Tim Trudell is the writer, editor and photographer of the couple, covering fabulous places, people, and events. Today, he has an e-book available titled “The Walking Tourists Guide to Nebraska Attractions beyond Omaha and Lincoln” and is currently finishing the manuscript for a book named “100 Things to Do in Omaha Before You Die,” anticipated to be published in the Spring of 2018. They have traveled for business, sporting events, extended family trips and, of course, for fun. The reason for the Walking Tourists name is they enjoy taking their time walking to most local destinations to help discover new 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.
