Omaha

3.9

Gateway to the West

A major transportation hub, Omaha was once considered little more than a stopping point on a pioneer's journey west. The meatpacking industry gave the city its start in the late 1800s; today five Fortune 500 companies are headquartered here, and numerous other industries maintain manufacturing plants in the metro area. Nebraska's largest city attracts tourism with world-class museums, a trend-setting zoo, an assortment of historical buildings, and distinct cultural neighborhoods. The city boasts more than a dozen historic districts, known for fine examples of turn-of-the-century architecture and ethnic cuisine. The diversity of the city has played a huge part in its lively music scene; Omaha has produced a number of influential jazz and blues artists.

Where to stay in Omaha

Not surprisingly for a city of its size, Omaha has a diverse range of accommodation options to suit a variety of tastes and budgets. A hotel close to downtown is usually more expensive, but enables guests to experience the best of Omaha's nightlife, shopping, and dining on foot. An apartment rental in one of the city's vibrant residential neighborhoods might be a good choice if you are planning a longer stay in the city. You'll find national chain hotels and motels in many of Omaha's suburbs.
