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.

Transportation is an obvious concern when living in an area this widespread. The city of Omaha covers over 130 square miles. Omaha remains connected to a number of interstates, making car travel the popular mode of transportation. Omaha sits along Interstate 80, which allows for connections to the Highway 50, US 275/NE 92 and Interstates 680 and 480/75.

Omaha sponsors public transportation options, as well. There are plans to build a light rail system at some point in the future, but for now, residents can take advantage of the Omaha Metro bus system. Omaha is surrounded by a series of waterways, too. 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. It sits on the west side of the Missouri River, meaning people coming from downtown Omaha have to cross state lines into Iowa and circle back to get to the airport. Eppley manages three separate terminals and hosts most of the major airlines.


Omaha is a big city, so the shopping opportunities are vast. The city offers malls, outlet stores and quaint streets full of boutiques and art galleries. Westroads Mall, located just off Interstate 680, is the largest shopping venue. Westroads caters to restaurants and typical “mall” businesses such as Old Navy and JcPenney. There is a movie theater inside the structure, as well.

Shadow Lake Towne Center in the South of Metro region of Omaha is an outdoor mall that features both mainstream shopping sites like Bed, Bath and Beyond and boutique stores such as Charming Charlie. Omaha’s Old Market is a major retail space located Downtown. The Old Market offers warehouses converted into trendy restaurants, shops and art galleries.
