Nebraska’s Metro Area

More than half of Nebraska’s total population resides within the Metro Region. Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska’s two largest cities, are surrounded by open space and farmland, creating a unique mix of rural and urban living. This is the cultural hub of Nebraska, with top-notch museums, art galleries and theater. There is much to experience here, from the state capitol in Lincoln, to the Joslyn Art Museum for the visual arts in Omaha, to the Cowboy Music Show in Ashland.

Magnificent views of the Missouri River can be found at the Mt. Vernon Gardens in Omaha, a small version of George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate situated atop a Missouri River bluff. Down below, scenic cruises on the Missouri River provide a different perspective of the river culture that has thrived here for generations. Omaha’s Old Market, a turn-of-the-century brick marketplace with brick streets, is home to many fine restaurants and quaint shops.
