Omaha is a busy little city. If you're looking for a city vibe, but don't want to be crammed like in big cities, then Omaha is perfect for you. We got many schools for your children to attend, both private and public. Omaha relatively doesn't have much violence, but there are incidents here and there just like any other place in the world. What draws a lot of people to Omaha is our amazing zoo and aquarium and also the college world series. Both of these events are out your fingertips if you live in Omaha and you wouldn't need to travel! In Omaha, the traffic isn't too terrible, but rush hour can be a pain every now and then. Overall, Omaha is a great little city and I recommend it.

Omaha has great attractions and a decent nightlife. You can find a restaurant for almost any type of food you have a craving for, and it will be delicious! I would love to see more outside food events though. There are endless job opportunities and it is not a hassle to get hired as well you just have to want it. The commute time is great. I live North, and work South and my commute time is less than 15 each morning and afternoon. They could though use more kid friendly events that ages 5 and under can enjoy for a change. Omaha is a great city to raise a family and the houses on the market are fairly inexpensive compare to home in other states. Overall, anyone who visits, or moves to this city will not regret it and will enjoy every bit of it.
Did not know what to expect when I first entered the state of Nebraska, but it certainly was not Omaha. I thought of corn fields and farm lands, with the nearest booming city to be hours away. I was thankfully mistaken, and instead discovered that Omaha was in fact the booming city. Full of diversity in culture and good people. Omaha has something for everyone, it has community, activities, art and opportunity for growth. There is always something to do, or somewhere to be involved. There is also certainly no shortage of job opportunities!
