Relocating to Omaha
"Omaha is a good place to live! Out of all the states that I have traveled to throughout my life - exactly 11 - Omaha is the only one that has EVERYTHING. I enjoy things like eating out, going for walks to the library, watching sports, and looking at some cool art during my free time. There is the College World Series, parks everywhere, and Kansas City is just a two-hour drive if you are a chiefs fan. There is one fallacy though, because of past implementations of redlining the city is still segregated to a degree. Some schools are very diverse though, along with other popular places such as the malls and the Zoo. In conclusion, I'm happy with Omaha because of the ability I have to do things that I enjoy." - Niche
