As things heat up in the midwest, many of us have one thing on our mind: backyard barbecues. There’s just something about gathering with your friends and family under the sun that makes this season perfect. And here in the Omaha area, we get to do all of that poolside, lakeside and fireside on some of the region’s most beautiful properties.
Check out a few of the area’s standout homes with gorgeous outdoor entertaining spaces. Whether you prefer pool parties, garden parties or fireside soirees, there’s a setting on our list that fits the bill.
