- Live Music
Rising out of the prairies and cornfields of the heartland, Omaha serves as a cultural wellspring and economic powerhouse for the region. Downtown has seen a lot of development in recent years, and now serves up a huge selection of trendy shopping, dining, and entertainment, particularly around the Old Market; the Blackstone neighborhood has also emerged as a new hotspot for adventurous restauranteurs and hip nightlife. The robust live music scene in Omaha is one of the city’s worst-kept secrets, with national publications singing the praises of popular venues like the Waiting Room and the annual Maha Music Festival at Stinson Park.
Omaha is serious about college sports – the University of Nebraska’s Cornhuskers are hometown heroes, and the city is the longtime home to the College World Series every summer. For more relaxing downtime, soak in views of the Missouri River (and wave to Council Bluffs, Iowa) from Heartland of America Park, or pack up your picnic basket and head over to Standing Bear reservoir.

The Riverfront Marina in Downtown Omaha and Levi Carter Park both allow for water travel. The River City Star is a paddleboat that moves between Omaha and Council Bluffs along the Missouri River.
Eppley Airfield hosts the air travel in the region. Eppley is a medium-sized hub that handles around 80 flights a day.

Eppley manages three separate terminals and hosts most of the major airlines.
