Hmm I guess it depends what your definition of exciting is. If it's big city, nightlife, cosmopolitan, urban, culture, events, etc. then I would say either NYC, Chicago, San Francisco, or LA even though LA requires a little more driving then the other three. Maybe Boston and Seattle.

If you just want to party, party, party, and party some more and don't mind tourists then Las Vegas and Miami. Miami has the bonus of a great beach. Las Vegas has gambling galore.

Some people find outdoor sports and activites exciting and then I would say San Diego, places in Colorado, etc. Think mountain biking, surfing, snowboarding, rock climbing, etc.

It simply has to be Omaha.

I wonder what the life span is in those war zones?

THE most exciting? Even I think that's wishful thinking. I think we're a great place, but Omaha doesn't beat out places like Las Vegas for excitement. It is very exciting, don't get me wrong, but this just isn't our fight. Lets back off here.

Well, if you are entitled to voice your opinion about your perception of Omaha being such a great place, others can also voice their opinion about what an exciting place it truly is. Sometimes over exuberance on a subject must be met with a more tempered and realistic viewpoint i.e. tone.

I guess, but if you want people to take you seriously, you've got to pick your battles. If you are adamant about this, I wont stop you, I simply won't be assisting your point.

People do take seriously what I have to say on the subject of Omaha. The problem is we have a couple of people that are artificially inflating the importance of Omaha as a cultural mecca, financial center and economic powerhouse as it relates to much larger and more important metropolitan areas. I don't think any of the people that are taking you and Go NE to task are going to claim that Omaha is a dying back water whose better days are behind it. On the contrary, I've stated it is an up and coming city and seems to have a decent future. But to constantly harp about how allegedly great it is and then Go NE claiming that someone said "NYC has nothing on Omaha" is not only absurd but bordering on the insane. You need to be taken to task for some of these statements and in fact, Go NE has just been exposed by someone in the "Cities with the Brightest Future" string.
