Omaha Top 25?

Postby Brad » Fri Oct 16, 2009 11:46 pm

I am looking for a list of the Top 25 Thing you think of when you think Omaha!

I don't expect everyone to list 25, but 3 or 4 is cool.  If you have free time, list all 25.

What is Omaha?  What should outsiders see???

I am having a hard time coming up with 25.

1.  Zoo (Largest Glazed Geodesic Dome, Largest Indoor Rain Forest, Largest Underwater Aquarium Tube Walkway, largest Nocturnal exhibit, as well as all the other amazing attractions, Hubbard Gorilla Valley, Orangutan Forest, High Tech Cat Complex, Bear Canon, etc...).

2.  Downtown (Old Market, GLM, Heartland of America Park, Buffalo Sculptures).

3.  Museums (Joslyn, Durham, Union Pacific).

4.Lauritzen Gardens/Kenefick Park.  (Kenefick is a must for railfans from around the world, and the Gardens are absolutely beautiful).

5.  Qwest Center Omaha/TD Ameritrade Stadium (UNO Hockey, Creighton Basketball, Concerts and the CWS).

6.  Bob Kerry Pedestrian Bridge (Largest Pedestrian Bridge Connecting 2 states).

I am thinking of more...

What about some of the restaurant institutions?

La Casa
Lo Sole Mio
Gorats (or other obligatory steak house)

Why does there have to be 25?

I think one has to be careful with this list to distinguish between 25 things people in Omaha do and what would be of Interest to visitors. This could make 25 even harder.

don't we already have threads that specifically discuss the best Omaha restaurants?  What's the need for being redundant?

best pizza...

best local food under $100...
http://eomahaforums.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=7413

best Italian...
http://eomahaforums.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=6587


I mean, maybe we could have a sticky for them, but i think it's ok that we have a thread for stuff that doesn't pertain to food here.  Also, i realize that i did put food places in my list, but i don't think we need one for just food here.  Secondly, what locals do and what visitors would look for when coming to Omaha don't have to be different.  In fact, any time i go somewhere new, i like seeing something that isn't touristy or as well known.  That makes the trip more of an experience for me.  Example: slides at HoAP: no one is going to come here looking for them.  But tons of people here have seen them and been on them, so it has some status and charm that is worth seeing for anyone visiting the old market.

Maybe I'm missing the point of this thread but I interpreted it as what you'd direct visitors to in Omaha.


Brad wrote:
the Top 25 Thing you think of when you think Omaha


Well for me one of the first things I think of is food.  It's also one of the first things I mention when someone asks me about Omaha.  Think of other cities in the same context.  You are in Philadelphia and you want to know where to get a good cheese steak.  I can't imagine telling an outsider about New Orleans and not mentioning food. If I take your sentence literally I think of a list that would include; steaks, stockyards, insurance companies, Boys Town, etc.  I don't think that's what you are looking for no?

Perhaps it would help to know what you are trying to accomplish with such a list.


newguy wrote
Secondly, what locals do and what visitors would look for when coming to Omaha don't have to be different.


I'm not saying it has to be and I agree with your point on the slides, but I suspect most visitors may not share your enthusiasm for the Mutual dome or random churches.

In fact, any time i go somewhere new, i like seeing something that isn't touristy or as well known.  That makes the trip more of an experience for me.


That can't include food? Don't you eat when you go somewhere new?  When I'm somewhere new I'm always looking for a good local place instead of the franchise gutter, (i.e. MacDonald's, Chili's, etc.)

Of course there are other food threads, but doesn't it make sense to include food in a Welcome to Omaha forum?  Sure it makes sense to have it under the dining/entertainment section, but there's cross over in these topics.  By the way, your links to the other threads I think underscores such a usefulness to outsiders in this forum.

I didn't mean food wasn't allowed on the list, it just wasn't quite what I was looking for.  I guess my list that I started above would include "Great LOCAL Omaha Restaurants" all lumped in to one, but to each their own.

Bird banding at Aksarben Aquarium this Saturday... 9am.  If you ever wanted some really close up shots of birds... here's your chance... oh, and you'll be doing the releasing of them after they've been checked/banded.  A REALLY cool activity if you've got kids... and it's free!

http://www.hustonfamily.com/gallery2/ma ... mId=102259


Those living history weekends at Fort Atkinson are really cool too... and also free.  Look for them next year... don't bother to go to the park for the park itself... not worth the trip.

There are some great ideas here! For me the top things are:

1. The numbered streets! Moving here from a small town in NW Pennsylvania it was comforting to know I really couldn't get lost
2. The people! One day, shortly after we moved here for good in 2004 we were in a McDonald's and the manager stopped by to make sure everything was ok. My husband and I just looked at each other - shocked!
3. Aksarben - for some reason that has always tickled me that it's Nebraska spelled backwards.
4. Those big slides downtown - they are SO much fun

I know I have more, I'll have to think about it

LOL Now I will say that since we've been here a while the fast food workers don't seem as friendly so maybe we just hit it on a good day. But generally.....the people here are nice. I haven't lived on the west coast but have lived in Ohio, Pennsylvania and North Carolina and I really prefer Nebraska to all of them. I love it here.

1. Old Market (its stores and food) - a lot of people who come in for business get taken to interesting places by people who live here. Someone took a group of people from First Data to Spaghetti Works... now come on!
2. Zoo
3. Downtown (Pedestrian Bridge, GLM, Heartland Park).
4. Westroads & Village Pointe (for those that want to shop)
5. Joslyn

Ted and Wally's is a must. Also, if you were born and raised in Omaha not sure how Bronco's doesn't get a mention (especially if you've had too much to drink the night before).

Last time I went to Broncos was around 1979, i think. The fries were great, burgers so-so. Now I have to go back.

1. Potholes. Year-round.
2. Property Taxes
3. School District Turf Wars
3. Every kind of extreme weather, except hurricanes
4. Named streets that start & stop dozens of times between the river and Elkhorn
5. Perpetual annexations
6. Ernie Chambers
7. Streets named after letters of the alphabet. Who the heck wants to live on Y Street?
8. Underperforming garbage collection contractors

My son got a 27 on his ACT. No this score is not as high as what Jeff's son achieved. But one has to remember the paternal gene-pool my son has to overcome. On a PGPAB [Paternal Gene-Pool Adjusted Basis], my son's score is a 37 and Jeff's son's PGPAB ACT score is 19.
