Nebraska State Capitol

Nebraska is located in the center of the United States. It is considered one of the central prairie states, along with Oklahoma, Kansas, North Dakota, and South Dakota. Nebraska is an important producer of beef, pork, corn, and soybeans. The state is also home to the world’s largest train yard, Union Pacific’s Bailey Yard.

Omaha is the largest city in Nebraska, and it merges the high-energy aspects of a bustling metropolis with the more modest feel of the prairie lifestyle. The city has a strong arts community, many museums and historical sites, 17 public and semi-public golf courses, and exciting athletic events, such as rodeos, football games, and college baseball.

Lincoln, known as the “Prairie Capital City,” is the second-largest city in Nebraska. Residents enjoy many parks, restaurants, bars, galleries, outdoor activities, golf courses, and cultural events. Museums and historical sites include pioneer homestead replicas and Plains Native American exhibits located downtown and around the city.

Nebraska real estate includes high-end historic neighborhoods, single-family homes in suburban developments and golf communities, urban dwellings near universities, and rural retreats near mountains and rivers.
