"Omaha either great or horrible no in between" Omaha Favorite Tip by denver1982

Omaha General: 11 reviews and 3 photos

Favorite thing: if youre on a greyhound lay-over I would go down to the old market(1000-1300 block of jackson) they have some interesting places to eat, the greyhound station is at 1601 jackson which is the(500 block south) and at 16th and farnam(350 block south) there is a small grocrey store and at 16th and douglas(200 block south) there is a wal-greens and just 6 or 7 blocks south jackson on 13th there is a good czech resturant(bohemian cafe) thats excellent and cheap.

Id like too add a few things about Omaha:
-Omaha is a very good city for people who ride bikes, has trails from one end of the city too the other
-Omaha has a great, great cheap and affordable education system (state universities cost around 1000 dollars a year, and junior colles are around 500 dollars a year full-time) also in the newspaper I read Omaha has the best K-12 education system in the country (much better than denver public education that I went too)
-Omaha is the inbound telemarketing, collections and life insurance capital of north america so it has a very,very,very low unemploment rate and wages are higher than in much larger cities, just look at the omaha world herald
-cost of living: TWO bedroom goes for less than 50,000 dollars in a decent area

bad aspects:
-Filthy, smelly, unsanitary and unsafe southside of Omaha
