Omaha, NE

Omaha has grown since its 1854 beginnings to become the biggest city in Nebraska, with a population of more than 400,000. Omaha is located in the eastern part of the state near the Iowa border, 126 miles from Des Moines. Omaha gets as much snow as rain annually (about 30 inches of each), and averages a nippy 21 degrees in January, but a pleasant 77 in July. Omaha is a famously good place to live, cited by Forbes Magazine as one of the top 15 regions in the nation and by Parenting Magazine as among the top 10 cities for raising a family.

More rural neighborhoods, such as Sarpy, Washington and western Douglas counties let home-owners enjoy vast woody acreages with stables, streams, and ponds. Those who prefer to be closer to the city will find everything from vintage Victorian homes south of Broadway Avenue to new homes in Council Bluffs and Loess Hills. Historic neighborhoods include Field Club, Bemis Park, Blackstone, Gold Coast, Cathedral, Happy Hollow, Fairacres, Country Club, Florence, Hanscom Park, Kountze Park, Benson and Dundee, where billionaire Warren Buffett lives in a relatively modest home. Midtown, north downtown and South Omaha are all undergoing renewal and redevelopment projects.
