Review of Omaha, Nebraska


Omaha has been a great place to live thus far
Star Rating - 3/21/2018
I moved to Omaha from Southern California in November of 2017. Housing is more affordable, food is more affordable, gas is more affordable, commute to work decreased drastically.
There are plenty of jobs in Omaha and it has been my experience that they pay much better and offer many more perks than jobs I have had in California.
I suppose a certain amount of happiness is dependent upon what your goals and expectations are. For instance, I am late 30's married and trying to build up savings and assets. I am in Omaha to work, save, and invest while cutting down my cost of living. I know there are no beaches or mountains near by, but my purpose is not to go to the beach and mountains.
The winter was not too bad in my opinion, we had a white christmas and experienced driving in the ice. Now I look forward to tornado season, which everyone here has said isn't a big deal, but I would just the same take a California earthquake over a tornado because it is what I am used to. Needless to say I am a little nervous, but I bought a home with a basement so I guess I am good to go.
The city of Omaha is beautiful and while I do miss California, I have been quite happy here in Omaha.

Were you paid by the mayor to write this crap?

I just drove thru Omaha and fell in love. Please, don't turn Omaha into California and ruin it. Please, if any policy on the Nebraska ballot that you have seen before in California, I beg you to vote against it. Denver Colorado got ruined by a massive influx of Californians; real estate is out of control, and now is as expensive as California; traffic is now horrible, etc. That's why I want to flee Denver, running from the hippies.
