Nebraska’s Metro Area

Monday, February 1st, 2010

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.

Nebraska is a diverse state, with rolling grasslands, astonishing sandhills, meandering rivers, ancient oak forests, and cosmopolitan cities. Outdoor recreation is abundant here. There are miles and miles of quiet and rushing rivers, for peaceful floats or exciting rides down the rapids. Hikers are delighted by trails through the dry sandhills of the northwest or the woods of the northeast. Fishermen are drawn to the Prairie Lakes Region. Bikers enjoy the many scenic byways.

An enormous amount of history has flowed through Nebraska, particularly during the westward expansion of this country, and it is fascinating to explore that history in depth. This land was – and is – peopled by Native Americans. Settlers of European descent traveled here in search of lush farmland and a better life. Lewis and Clark spent a great deal of time here, exploring the Missouri River and surrounding land.
