Once known as the Gateway to the West, Omaha today is far more than that. Situated in the center of the country, this city has stayed in tune with the times. In its early history, it was a transportation hub, a world famous stockyards and meatpacking industry.
Today, it is home to a large number of insurance companies, and was named by Newsweek magazine as one of the top high-tech havens in the nation. It is in the heart of farm country yet has the highest per capita of millionaires in the U.S.The varied immigrants who helped Omaha build railroads and provided labor for the stockyards also helped to create one of the most diverse cities anywhere. They created enclaves of neighborhoods some of which still hardily survive today.
From the Irish to Germans, Italians, Afro-Americans, Greeks, Czechs, and Mexicans, the hard workers who built the city have left a vibrant imprint. As you search for your Omaha apartment, you will notice the wonderful communities you travel through.
Historic and Modern Selections
As with many other cities, Omaha's downtown area is undergoing a resurgence. There are both conversions and high rise condos there. West Omaha is home to Boys' Town and there is an area called just that. South Omaha is also historic and home to Little Italy, Little Poland and Little Bohemia amongst others.
The Northern portion of the city is also historical, full of parks and close to the airport. The closer you get to the city limits, the more new builds and gated type communities you'll come across.
Best Zoo in the World
From art to music to theatre, Omaha's cultural scene has received national recognition. The community playhouse is the largest in the country and the Henry Doorly Zoo is known to be one of the best in the world. The pop music scene has roots in rhythm and blues while jazz and hip hop have exciting lives here too. The city is full of parks and recreational opportunities. Along the river, you'll find plenty of hiking and biking room.
The Gene Leahy Mall downtown is an oasis of green and water. No matter where you find your Omaha apartment, you'll find that this is an easy city for living.
Corn Fed Beef
Of course Omaha is known for its corn fed beef so you'll find plenty of steakhouses scattered all around the city. Try Gorat's who say they serve the finest steaks in the world and watch out for Warren Buffet who likes to eat there. Or go out to Charlie's on the Lake for fantastic martinis and views of the water. Because of such an historical immigrant population, Omaha is blessed with plenty of ethnic restaurants too.
At night, go in search of some Omaha music. The Waiting Room or the Slowdown are great places to start but depending on the neighborhood of your Omaha apartment, there will likely be smaller, more intimate places near you.
