Omaha Eppley Airfield Airport (OMA)

Founded in 1854 and named for an American Indian Tribe, Omaha means “those going against the wind or current,” and this city’s residents certainly live up to that name. It has produced notable figures from Fred Astaire and Marlon Brando to Gerald Ford and Malcolm X. And in this is a quintessential American city, Omahans seem to be constantly striving to transform themselves and their beloved home.

A Taste of Transformation

The riverfront and downtown areas are two examples of this transformation, both having undergone a huge rejuvenation, prompting a growth in all aspects of life. The city is now proudly home to the Bob Kerrey Bridge, a one-of-a-kind pedestrian bridge that “S”-curves it's way across the Missouri River giving everyone who visits a beautiful view of the city’s skyline. Walk further through downtown and you’ll find yourself knee-deep in an eclectic mix of nightlife spots including indie-rock clubs, cinema art houses and trendy lounges. Grab a round for the whole table at Brazen Head Irish Pub before slipping into the Slowdown, an indie-rock club. Or maybe just catch a flick at the Film Stream, a movie theater dedicated to independent films.

When it comes to food, the city's agriculture plays a big role in the cuisine, thanks to the reputation of Nebraska bred cattle and the famous Omaha Steaks mail order company. Indulge in a steak at one of Warren Buffet's favorite restaurants, Gorat's Steakhouse. If you're looking for something slightly less of a splurge, Omaha has restaurants of all types of cuisines to satisfy your appetite. In the mood for Mexican? Crunch on a puffy shell taco at California Tacos. Want a slice of pie? Think Pudgy's Pizzeria. Got sushi on the brain? Make a stop at Hiro Sushi. The tastes are endless.
