Yes, Omaha is one of those cities you don’t readily find on a map or even hear people talking about. But, it’s actually a best-kept secret, so let’s keep it between you and me. Omaha is the corporate headquarters for 5 Fortune 500 companies: Berkshire Hathaway, Union Pacific, ConAgra Foods, Peter Kiewit, and Mutual of Omaha. And the unemployment rate is an amazing 3.8%, which is substantially lower than the national average.* High concentration areas include healthcare services, finance, education, business, and insurance,* and interested students may attend any one of 11 4-year institutions in the area.*
It’ll never get any easier to find the popular attractions in a city than in it is in Omaha. Fifteen giant blue push pins mark checkpoints you definitely want to check out such as the famous Henry Doorly Zoo, the Pedestrian Bridge, or the unique shopping boutiques of Old Market.* There are also a variety of festivals, museums, and musical heritage, including Omaha Riverfront Jazz and Blues Festival and MAHA Music Festival. If Warren Buffett, one of the world’s richest people, thinks it’s a good idea to live in Omaha, then you’d better listen.*Bureau of Labor Statistics *www.cityofomaha.org *www.bea.gov *www.visitomaha.com
