Review of Omaha, Nebraska

Omaha pros and cons
Star Rating - 8/30/2020
This place is great for families and kids, but if you're an empty nester or you're not into the whole having babies thing then it's best to just get out. You'd like it here if you still talk to people from high school and married your first boyfriend/girlfriend. You'd also like it here if you like to binge drink at the same bars on the weekends. You will not like it here if you enjoy professional sporting events, outdoor recreation, or comfortable weather.

Pros: Nebraska nice, good local restaurants, great zoo, CWS

Cons: heavy taxation, it's basically just a sprawling suburbia (oh, and it's highly segregated), nothing pretty to look at - it's just miles of neighborhoods and strip malls, humid as hell in the summer, overcast a lot of the time, high crime, crappy roads, not a lot to do except stuff your face or drink
