Omaha: The Epicenter of the Midwest
Settled on the banks of the Missouri River, Omaha is the largest city in Nebraska. Known as the “Gateway to the West,” the city is the home to the headquarters of multiple Fortune 500 companies, including the United States’ largest railroad operator, Union Pacific Corporation. A fast-growing and diverse economy has made Omaha a cultural hotspot with areas such as the new North Downtown. It offers a variety of entertainment with outstanding music performances at venues such as Slowdown and TD Ameritrade Park where you can also catch the College World Series and Creighton University Baseball. Along with progressive attractions, the rich history of Omaha is celebrated and preserved in neighborhoods such as Old Market with horse-drawn carriage rides that let you experience all of the restaurants, galleries, and shops along its brick paved streets. Whether you’re looking to see a show at the historic Orpheum Theater, taste some of the renowned Omaha steakhouses including Gorat’s on Center Street, or visit the Henry Doorly Zoo, you’ll find everything you could ask for and more in the city of Omaha.
