Douglas County Reviews
I have mixed feelings about living in Douglas County. The people are friendly, traffic isn’t horrible for a city and it’s clean. The taxes here are ridiculous. Property taxes are too high, utilities have increased their rates consistently. Residents refer to Nebraska as the tax me state. Nebraska will always be home, not Douglas County.
Douglas County is the best part of Omaha, Nebraska! I lived there until I left for college and would go back to live there after college.
I like the overall environment, but it has minimal activities. There are niche areas of town, but people need to be in town to know.
