One thing you are going to be very happy with living in Omaha..

Is all the great restaraunts in the area.. This city is very well known for its very good food, and its not expensive at all either..

another is entertainment, there are venues popping up in urban neighborhoods, but non like downtown, north downtown, midtown and aksarben village..

Here is some great information:
Greater Omaha Economic Development Partnership

Here is some tourist info for visitors and for everyday Omaha people:
Omaha Convention & Visitors Bureau

Don't worry about diversity in Omaha, we have some nicely set up cultural centers in town and a very rapidly growing minority population growth rate..

In the last 15 years, we went from 12% minority population rate to 27% and while the caucasion population is rising, the minority population is growing at a much much faster rate.. And many of them are from other countries including Africa, the middle east, south america, mexico, a large influx of asians..

So, while Omaha isn't 50% minority like LA it is certainly getting there..

One last thing, people here have a very high work ethic, people here are friendlier, most have a high-quality about them as most live here for the good-type of life, and overall you are going to be VERY pleasantly surpirsed at how this city stacks up with the best in america..

I lived in Vegas, a destination that many rave about.. I lived there for a year and that city cannot hold a candle for the vast opportunities that Omaha has for you..

If you have any more questions about the city itself, there are some here with a vast amount of knowledge including myself..

and many other, please ask as we want our new neighbors to have a good transition.

Basically, the smaller the street number, the further east and closer to Downtown and the Missouri River it is. The older parts of Omaha are further east. I absolutely love the older parts of the city, but you do have too be a little careful, because you can have some seedy areas in nice neighborhoods, and extremely nice areas in seedy neighborhoods.

The Benson area (roughly 52nd St to 72nd St - and from Blondo north to Maple) would be a really convenient area to be in. A lot of the homes will run from $75,000 - $100,000 in price.
I don't know. My inlaws lived near UNO in a tiny bungalow, maybe 1000 sq. ft. at most. I really don't know how much it sold for last year, but it couldn't have been anywhere near a half million. Probably more like $100,000.

Most homes in the Dundee area are around 300,000 I would think.
