Nebraska, U.S.A.
GATEWAY TO THE WEST
Welcome to Omaha, Nebraska.
Omaha is situated in the Midwestern United States on the Missouri River. The city is the largest one the Nebraska with around 446,600 residents, and is part of the Douglas County and the Greater Omaha metro area. The City of Omaha was founded in 1854, when a group of speculators came along from the neighboring Council Bluffs, Iowa. Omaha earned the nickname Gateway to the West because of its location by the Missouri River and a crossing called Lone Tree Ferry. During the 19th century, the city's central position in the United States caused it to become a prominent transportation hub, and for a long time this was the major source of economy for the city. Other large work sectors were the railroads and breweries, and in the 20th century the Omaha Stockyards and meatpacking plants were renowned internationally. Today, Omaha is a thriving city with several Fortune 500 and Fortune 1000 companies, including mega-conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway and Valmont Industries. In 2009, Forbes ranked Omaha as both America's No.1 Best Bang-For-The Buck City and No.1 on their Fastest Recovering Cities list. One of Omaha's largest sources of income is tourism, with attractions like the annual College World Series and the Henry Doorly Zoo serving as top destinations for visitors from all over. The city is divided into six geographical areas: Downtown, Midtown, North Omaha, South Omaha, West Omaha and East Omaha. Each section within these different areas features their own distinct community, and the city has a wide array of neighborhoods ranging from historical and new to suburban. There are also several ethnic enclaves, including Little Italy, Little Bohemia, Little Mexico and Greek Town. Omaha is home to numerous historic districts and nationally significant landmarks, such as the Fort Omaha Historic District and the Joslyn Castle. Visitors can enjoy a great range of activities including history, sports, outdoors and cultural experiences. A local favorite is the Old Market in Downtown Omaha, where you'll find an abundance of restaurants, art galleries and upscale shopping. Revel in the historic ambience with preserved brick paved streets and horse-drawn carriages, while watching street performers and getting bargains from the many vendors. The cultural and historical attractions in Omaha have in fact been so great, that numerous national newspapers have raved about it including the Boston Globe and The New York Times.
