Are there the same amount of amenities offered in Omaha as there are in larger Texan cities or is Omaha more similar to the smaller Texan cities? Are the summers in Nebraska as hot as the summers in Texas? Is there much diversity in Omaha?



Nebraskans are a lot more insular than Texans and do not make friends as easily.

Bottom line: we live in the (Divided) States of America. Choose your BLUE vs RED states on where to live. If you don't believe politics matters then ignore this message. VOTE....that is if you consider yourself a citizen of this republic. "My values are not your values."

It is extremely difficult to make friends in Texas if you were not born/raised there and if you are from a non-southern state.

Well said jaysan89. When in Texas their line is: welcome to Texas and act the "friendly way by waving at a stranger as you pass them walking or in a car/truck." A complete LIE. I waved at people there and no one ever waved back.

I find the above is accurate.

N people seem to cap their pride at college football.

There is no cap to Texas Pride. +/-

Rural Texas?, better be BORN there (and have family roots to 1830's) Then you are less likely to be a 'newcomer'. Lots of very insular ethnic communities. 'Friendly enough' as long as you are just passing through.

Both states have significant taxes (Property and HEAVY school tax in Texas, no income tax... RENT don't buy a home.)

Texans drive faster and wear nicer hats.

I worked on a ranch when I was in my teens and I had a really nice cowboy hat. Then I learned the truth. Nice cowboy hats aren't so nice after about 6 months of real cowboy stuff. So like everyone else on the the ranch I went back to just wearing cheaper baseball hats.

I disagree. I've been in Texas for a long time and never found it to be so. I'm from New York and never experienced unfriendliness in Texas; it's not that close-minded.

Its more likely to happen on a Texas country road than it is on a highway or in the city.

I've considered both states, I chose Nebraska if I do move to one of them due to the mass influx of people due to come into Texas from CA and I like much how life in Omaha could be, and how it can get out of the plandemic than Portland will. I feel social chances go up, despite colder weather in NE. I still seek for Portlands polar opposite as I cant stand being here. Enjoing cit life withoiut the high t
raffic is a bonus to me. I was going to go with Dallas but I didnt, was told to not since its gotten a lot more crowded overnight in Covid. As nice of a metro as it looks like, Omaha looks to have some of the same stuff tbh.


The thing NE doesnt have a lot of that I want, but nor does Oregon, is diversity. I would like a mixed place for the most part. Thats what was drawing me to Dallas but if the populace as it is cool, it will make up for it or I could just move to N Omaha. I DO NOT want West Omaha though in the research I have done. I dont like too whitebread. Im not a liberal but when I was in a diverse environment, I did like it better I wont lie. I have also lived in FL which alwas seem to not disappoint when it comes to wanting the diversity, even if in a whiter part. I was seeking some of that when I wanted to go to TX as well. I like good food, diff people, nice people, a good combo of those things when I look at a place to live. So it looks like its N or South Omaha, I hear CB is not what I want plus its in Iowa. I decided I would visit Iowa but make home Nebraska and so far that dont seem like a bad choice.



I have Lincoln on the list but its 2nd to Omaha at this time and has been.


I do have one political question though about NE. Is it solid Trump or are there an amount of Never Trump conservatives as well, or am i living in the past asking about the NT people? I have been libertarian and have liked movements like the Free state project. Is NE libertarian at all also? I am just so damn sick of sides, Biden or Trump and would like something different. Both stink to me. If I had to pick one I dont even know who I would. Biden id imagine, but I would want a 3rd if it was there. Trump is a total moron though. So where do I fit based on political opinion? I dont like politics though, i just hate the nonsense circus and this is part of the reason Portland pisses me off. Im so not on the extremes.
