There maybe a few funny people here, but the vast majority of Huskerfans will be very considerate of you and your team, Pittnurse seems to not want to post very many positive things about Omaha and Nebraska, which is okay cause it is her opionion...

I dont see why people pay so much to see the Nebraska team play I mean they are a fairly lousy team who hasnt won a national championship in more then a decade.

Wink Lol...

They haven't been elite that is for sure Mattden, but only 1 year they actually had a losing record of 5-6 and last year they were close in every game with a North division championship and a 9-5 record, next year looks promising

I said "from personal experience". You probably wouldn't even believe the story about my Omaha wedding reception. It was bad. Tom Osborne himself would have been ashamed to hear some of these people, who were my new family!

One thing you will see, if you get a ticket to a Husker football game that is, is that the fans in the north end of the stadium will give the visiting team a standing ovation no matter what the out come of the game is. It is our way of saying thank you for playing the game. We will even do it for the Buckeyes if they ever come to Lincoln. You will be fine showing your support for the Buckeyes.

MattDen when was the last time that Colorado won a national championship and how many have they won and how many years in a row did they go to bowl games and how many seasons in a row did they win 9 or more games. Yes we were down, but the Big Red is coming back much faster than say Colorado. Enjoy you move to Ohio.

I live in Omaha and love it here. Having said that, I've visited Columbus quite a bit and find it to be a great city. It's bigger than Omaha, and thus has some things that Omaha doesn't, i.e. stores, restaurants, etc.
In addition, you can get to more places non stop from Columbus than you can from Omaha. Easton Town Center is Village Pointe on a LOT of steroids. Columbus also has the Blue Jackets, an NHL team, as well as OSU, which has both hockey and football, so no driving to Lincoln for football. You can also drive to Cincinnati, Cleveland, etc. in a couple of hours.

Anyway, both cities are fine, and whoever the clown is that has a problem with dirt and neighborhoods in Omaha, get a grip and while you do, buy a spell checker.

A hearty welcome to a non-Huskers fan. I'm all for adding football fan diversity to the state. :-) (A Hawkeye here)

My two cents - There's tons of arts/culture stuff in town. Most have already been mentioned - the Josleyn art museum, the Zoo, the symphony & opera. Plus more community theater than you can shake a stick at. From what it sounds like you're going to be in a good spot for getting places - the interstate makes everything about 15 - 20 minutes away at most. I don't have kids and didn't attend school here so I can't comment on that.

Again, welcome to the area!

I have 3 kids and just wonder if they will fit in and feel comfortable right away. We bought a house in North west Omaha from a builder named Hearthstone homes, and compared to the cost of a new house here, we got our 4 bedroom 2 1/2 bath for 159,000. Here it would of been 200,000 or a little more. We are on North 108th Street. Is this a good area? Anything around it yet, I havent seen it yet, but I will be flying out in April.

Thanks on any info you can give. I think the High School is Northwest High School.
Welcome to Omaha!!!! I moved here 13 years ago from Houston and do love the people here and the amenities. Great place to raise a family! Our first home was a Hearthstone and it was a great house...only built our current custom house b/c we outgrew that one (have 3 little ones too and ours was a small 3 BR/2Bath).
I would've directed you to our current home on the market in Elkhorn if I had heard anything about your move before deciding on Hearthstone.
I love the area we're in and the Elkhorn schools are amazing. I have one child with a severe disability and this area is a model for inclusion.
We're relocating to Oregon and will HOPE to find something similar out there.
I don't know too much about Columbus, but my dad grew up in Dayton!
