The city of Omaha, Nebraska is situated within the midwest part of the state. The city supports more than 400,000 inhabitants and serves as the county seat for Douglas County. The city is situated along the Missouri River, north of the mouth of the Platte River, which is roughly 30 km away. Omaha is the largest city within the Omaha-Council Bluffs metropolitan area (population around 865,300) and the largest in the state of Nebraska. There are over 1.2 million inhabitants within a 80-km radius of the city's center, forming the Greater Omaha area, the 60th-largest metropolitan area within the US.

Initially, Omaha was settled by the Omaha Indians. Established during the year 1854, the city of Omaha was established during the settling of America because it served as an important supply stop for people heading west. With the construction of the Union Pacific transcontinental railroad during the year 1869, the city of Omaha became a transportation hub for the region, that developed as a main center for agricultural products like for example livestock and grains.

Omaha's economy is rather diverse, with a really strong agricultural sector. Also strong are the city's banking, insurance, and high-tech telecommunications sectors. Omaha is the home of a lot of company head offices, such as ConAgra Foods, Ameritrade, Mutual of Omaha, Berkshire Hathaway, Sitel, Union Pacific railroad and West Teleservices. The United States military is another major employer. Offutt Air Force Base is home of the US Strategic Command.

Omaha features many attractions associated to the arts, like the city's very own symphony, opera and theaters. Omaha's Joslyn Art Museum has a large selection of western and Native American art. The Bemis Center for Contemporary Arts supports the creativeness of artists through artist residencies. There are numerous museums within the city of Omaha, like El Museo Latino, Durham Western Heritage Museum and Great Plains Black History Museum.

Omaha maintains well developed trail systems throughout the city. Residents and visitors could traverse 130 km of paved trails. The most popular part for walking, jogging, rollerblading and cycling is the Keystone Trail/Bellevue Loop Trail. To be able to experience nature outside of Omaha, the neighboring Desoto Bend National Wildlife Refuge has ducks, bald eagles and geese. Water sports and fishing facilities are available on the Missouri River, Lake Manawa and Carter Lake.

The attractions within the city of Omaha have taken advantage of the city's early history, when the famous British writer Rudyard Kipling visited here. The city of Omaha was the site of the Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show in 1883, when it drew around 8,000 spectators. The city of Omaha has numerous tourist attractions now. Downtown Omaha is the site of The Old Market, a thriving retail center and a major attraction. Tourists could attend the College World Series and visit the Henry Doorly Zoo.
