What Bert Has To Say About Omaha-Council Bluffs Metro Area

This metropolitan area includes Omaha, Nebraska’s largest city, and Council Bluffs, a more industrial city on the Iowa bank of the Missouri River. As a gateway to the Great Plains, Omaha is historically a world-class livestock, meat packing, and grain-shipping city. The city has always been a gateway and transportation center, starting with the Lewis and Clark expedition and later as the eastern terminus of the transcontinental Union Pacific Railroad. Today the city’s diverse economy includes food production and insurance- Mutual of Omaha, ConAgra, and Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Company have headquarters here. Led by Mr. Buffett, Omaha reportedly has more millionaires per capita than any other U.S. city.
