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!
We are on our second military assignment at Offutt and once again we're back in Omaha. I will say this. The first time around - I didn't know what to expect with Omaha and thought of corn and beef. I was pleasantly surprised by the size and the amenities found here. My husband and I married and had two of our kids here. It's a great place for families. Point blank - you can't beat the schools, the museums, the activities. Even after we moved - I looked back fondly on Omaha and found myself comparing other cities to Omaha. Nothing beat it. We lived in Germany, Florida, and Louisiana before moving back to Omaha. Being military all my life - I'm used to moving every few years. But I have to say - once my husband retires - I really have no qualms about staying put and building roots in Omaha!
