Nebraska Come home to America’s Heartland With a low cost of living, dynamic economy and strong Midwestern values, you won’t find a better place to live than Nebraska. Nebraska is part of many “Top 10” lists including: Top States for Quality of Life, Best States to Make a Living, and Top States for Business, just to name a few. Omaha was named the #1 city to raise a family in America both in 2013 and 2014. Come find out why! Consider our largest city, Omaha. Our city is home to five Fortune 500 companies, and the surrounding farmland helps keep the world fed. In 2008, Kiplinger’s Personal Finance magazine named Omaha the nation’s third best city to live, work and play. A robust business culture is a key contributor to our high quality of life, and an innovative and growing healthcare sector employs a vast number of people in our region. Alegent Creighton Health operates 10 acute care hospitals; and Creighton University, University of Nebraska Medical Center, and the University of Nebraska Omaha provide area residents with both an outstanding education and rewarding careers. Even with the rise of Omaha’s corporate community, Nebraska’s heritage is still firmly rooted in agriculture. The Omaha Stockyards gained international prominence in the early-to-mid 20th century, eventually becoming the nation’s largest livestock market and meatpacking industry center – and Nebraska’s ranching legacy lives on. Pork and beef operations continue to flourish in our state, and the rich soils of western and central Nebraska still yield bountiful crops of corn and soybeans. Nebraska has nearly 50,000 farms and ranches which use 93% of the state’s total land area. When it’s time for a break from the daily grind, Omaha offers a wide variety of recreation and entertainment options. Our most famous attraction is the internationally renowned Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium. This jaw-dropping destination features over 130 acres graced by some 17,000 animals, and has evolved into a national leader in animal conservation and research. The Joslyn Art Museum and the Durham Museum are both popular destinations. To truly immerse yourself in the lively, downtown atmosphere of Omaha, spend a day at the historic Old Market. An eclectic array of art galleries, bakeries, bookstores, unique shops and boutiques line the cobblestone streets. Top off your evening with a nightcap at one of our many entertainment venues. Whether you prefer live blues, jazz and folk music, indie rock or classical – Omaha has it all. Internationally acclaimed artists regularly grace the stage at CenturyLink Center Omaha, and outdoor concerts and music festivals are frequently held along the riverfront. You may experience the Omaha Symphony at the Holland Center for the Performing Arts, take in a Broadway production at the historic Orpheum Theater, or enjoy a local show at the Omaha Community Playhouse, the nation’s largest community theater. In the town of Bellevue, just south of Omaha, Offutt Air Force Base continues to serve as the headquarters of U.S. Strategic Command, the Air Force Weather Agency and the 55th Wing of the Air Combat Command. Neighboring Ashland is home to the Strategic Air and Space Museum, a state-ofthe-art facility that houses an extensive collection of aircraft, spacecraft and related artifacts. College sports are a way of life in Nebraska. The University of Nebraska Cornhuskers dominate the Lincoln landscape every Saturday of the football season. Known as the “Sea of Red,” Memorial Stadium can accommodate more than 87,000 fans, and holds the ongoing NCAA record for consecutive sellouts (333 at the close of the 2013-14 season). Every June, baseball enthusiasts from all over the country descend upon Omaha for the College World Series, the NCAA Division I championship baseball tournament, held at the new TD Ameritrade Park. Nature buffs and lovers of the outdoors will feel right at home in Nebraska. The Keystone Trail takes hikers and bikers on a 27-mile journey along the meandering Little Papillion Creek. Countless nature trails and bird watching areas can be found along the Missouri river, as well. Anglers will find several nice fishing spots within a relatively short distance of town. Area Lakes are home to healthy populations of bluegill, walleye, large and smallmouth bass, northern pike, and more. The surrounding recreation area offers hunting, tent and RV sites, shooting and archery ranges, trails for hiking, biking, horseback riding, snowmobiles, and cross-country skiing. Schilling Wildlife Area is a busy corridor for waterfowl and migratory birds, serving as fertile hunting ground for ducks and geese. The rich river bottoms of southeast Nebraska are also rife with deer. Langdon Bend and Kansas Bend Wildlife Management Areas contain hundreds of acres of bottomland row crops, hardwoods, open pasture, deciduous timber, and marshy areas so you’re sure to bag that elusive buck. The Sandhills of Western Nebraska are a breathtaking drive highlighted by dramatic sand dunes, rivers, marshes and pristine stretches of prairie and farmland. The Nebraska Sandhills are among the largest dunes in America. Chimney Rock National Historic Site, near Scottsbluff, rises some 300 feet, and served as a landmark for travelers along the Oregon, California and Mormon Trails. The Sandhills are covered with cattle ranches – some as large as 500,000 acres. Raising and feeding beef cattle is the state’s single largest industry with an annual impact of $12.1 billion. Nearly 5 million head are finished and marketed in Nebraska, a state with a population of 1.8 million residents. Texas markets a third more cattle than Nebraska, but it has a population of 25.6 million residents – over 14 times larger. Combinig local expertise with national exposure...
