One thing to remember, and this might not even matter to you, is the weather. Its going to be either late fall or winter, so Omaha is going to be alot colder than Raleigh or Birmingham. Not to discourage you from Omaha, but most people go south in the winter.

I'll be going in November so I know it kinda sucks since there isnt as much to do in the winter time but I got to use the tickets or just lose them, thanks again to everyone that has responded. I starting to think its gonna be a waste of money going in Nov and I only got a couple of days so Im thinking I might just go to Denver and spend a day and come back, Denver is only $100 round trip and Im hoping its gonna be a nice day there.

There's stuff to do in Omaha in the winter but it will be a HUGE change from Albuquerque. If you can handle the cold, id say do it but if not pick Birmingham. The best time to go to Omaha is probably the best time to go anywhere.... June-August, September is cool but all the summer festivals are over.

It wouldn't be freezing cold in November and it probably won't even snow by then, but it would be cooler.

I've been to Nebraska in November. Not fun. Cold and windy with nothing to block it. I'd knock it off the list of possibilities for this alone. Sorry Omahans. On the other hand it's easily the best city on this list for steaks.

It might be too late for the fall colors in Raleigh, but maybe not...? UNC and Duke are very nice. But they have that fake "carolina style" BBQ out there, though...don't know if you can trust it.

B'Ham: only driven through but far more scenic than I expected. Maybe because it's farther south, the fall colors are present even in the late fall?

Well it would be kinda cool to experience winter weather outside of New Mexico cause Ive never been outside of New Mexico,West Texas or Colorado in the winter.

Raleigh is near the ocean and mountains. Omaha is on the Great Plains, with a different kind of beauty. I've never been to Birmingham.

Raleigh is a couple of hours from the coast, but it's a good 4 hours from the mountains. Still, driving from Raleigh to the coast would be pretty easy, and the Outer Banks are beeeeeautiful. Definitely worth a trip.
