Omaha, Nebraska, is on top of its game. It’s home to the Fortune 500 Company, Berkshire Hathaway (as well as its CEO, Warren Buffett). But it also boasts top schools, fine dining, one of the country’s best zoos—and a friendly atmosphere that makes it an ideal place to raise a family.

The 6 Best Neighborhoods in Omaha

Whether you’re looking for a beautiful old century home or a modern loft, Omaha has neighborhoods to suit every budget and lifestyle. Here are half a dozen of our favorites.

Aksarben/Morton Meadows

You’ll get the best of both worlds in this part of Omaha—both the tree-lined streets and charming century homes of the older portion of the community and all of the amenities and services that come with the new mixed-use development Aksarben Village.

Old Market

Omaha’s most historic neighborhood features cobblestone streets and a slew of historic buildings restored to house galleries, restaurants, shops, and bars. Close to downtown, Old Market makes a great choice for those looking for an upscale apartment or condominium.

Dundee

Home to Warren Buffett, Dundee enjoys a reputation as one of the nicest areas in all of Omaha. You’ll find beautiful old homes, large parks, top schools—and also 328 historic street lights with cast iron poles.

Papillion

This community began as a small railroad town in 1870 and, today, is a lively small city offering a wide range of homes, apartments, and condominiums. Papillion is anchored by the 70-acre Halleck Park, with its trails, fishing lake, courts, and fields.

Elkhorn

This western suburb is known as an ideal place for families. It has dozens of beautiful older homes, but also an abundance of sprawling new residences.
