You can see Omaha maybe 15 or 20 miles out. The lay of the land doesn't let you see it that far. I do want to explore the surrounding areas though and see if I can find a spot further away, high on a hill or something.

Nearest Major city to me is almost 250 miles away driving distance. Just under 1 million in Metro area is almost 100 miles away.

As for seeing my cities skyline, LOL, we don't have a skyline. The trees are taller than 95% of our buildings.
