Facts about Omaha

The Counting Crows lyrics make reference to, Omaha, somewhere in Middle America. Geographically they might be right, but Omaha has just the perfect blend of down-home country charm with plenty of urban chic to make it more than just somewhere. With a population just under 500,000, it is the largest city in Nebraska and sits right on the Mississippi River just north of the mouth of the Platte. During the 19th century Omaha’s position as the “Gateway to the West” gained it significant notoriety and attracted a boom of stockyards, transportation industry, and breweries -- and that infrastructure is still very present in today’s city. Living in Omaha means getting familiar with the local brewery scene, which has certainly come a long way since those early days, and you’ll still see plenty of trains coming through. Not only is Omaha home to the annual college World Series and high-roller celebrity names like Warren Buffett, but the city was the birthplace of the prepackaged TV Dinner, Duncan Hines cake mix, and the Reuben sandwich. If you’re moving to Omaha you should get familiar with the beloved Nebraska Huskers, and if you’re coming from a big city like New York, get ready -- Nebraskans are famously friendly. You might say they invented Midwestern hospitality around these parts. And foodies, rejoice: being an agricultural state means Omaha has abundant fresh food, meat, and dairy to satiate your hunger. The Omaha Farmer’s Market is a mainstay of the city and many of the restaurants in the area place a big emphasis on locally sourced food.

Moving to Omaha

Climate

The climate in Omaha brings all four seasons, with fairly hot and humid summers and cold, snowy winters. Summer thunderstorms are common, with temperatures in the upper 70’s to 80’s, while the winters see an average snowfall of 28 inches and temperatures in the lower 20’s. From time to time, it will get down to zero, but that’s a notable occasion in this midwestern state.

Arts and Culture

There are plenty of local artists that Omaha likes to celebrate, starting with its Benson First Friday art walks. The trendy Hot Shops Studio showcases a rotating cast of locals, and even stopping at a coffee shop will likely provide an opportunity for art gazing. If you’d like to see the classics, visit the Joslyn Art Museum. Free admission for all gets you access to the exhibits, docent-led tours, the Symphony Joslyn series, and even children’s programming. Omaha is also home to Saddle Creek Records, which kind of makes the city akin to Nashville for Indie Rock -- acts like Bright Eyes and The Faint got their start here, and the label has their own venue called The Slowdown. Locals can also take in some great music at The Waiting Room Lounge and the Orpheum, while the city throws outdoor music festivals like Hullabaloo and MAHA. To get an up-close look at the area’s history, visit the 23-acre Lewis & Clark landing on the Mississippi. Many of the city’s events and festivals are held there, and it’s a great place for an afternoon educational picnic.

Unpakt’s Most Recommended

Old Market (Harney to Jackson Streets and 10th to 13th Streets)
The Old Market is more of a district than a specific location, but it’s the cobblestone-paved area of downtown known as the arts and food heartbeat of the city. Stroll around and see Omaha’s finest.

Alpine Inn (10405 Calhoun Road)
More of a local oddity, you can finish your meal and watch the scraps get tossed to the local raccoons for their dinner. There’s a glass partition, so they don’t get tempted to join you for dessert.

Henry Doorly Zoo (3701 S. 10th Street)
With the largest geodesic dome and the biggest indoor rainforest in the nation, the Omaha Zoo is massive and has something to interest everyone.

Love’s Jazz & Art Center (2510 N. 24th St)
During the 30’s and 40’s, Omaha had a thriving jazz scene, and this educational center celebrates the contributions of African Americans to the city’s culture. There are workshops, lectures, and concerts.
