A lot.

Texas has almost ten times as many people, with three of Americas ten largest cities. Nebraskas only urban areas are Lincoln and Omaha, and even those are sort of the smaller size.

A lot more diversified population. I think the panhandle with its wide open plains, is really the only region of Texas that is like Nebraska.

There is no difference between the "people" in NE and Texas. People are people. There are hundreds of thousands of ex-Nebraskans who live in Texas and there are many ex-Texans who live in Nebraska. There is no difference, except possibly and accent.

Now, there are many differences in the states, but that's not what was asked.

Ok, fine, now I'll ask. What are the primary differences between the states? Other than size.

A better question: What is the difference between the political 'leaning' of the average person who resides around "old town" Omaha and the average resident of "old town" Austin? Or, of course, as afore meant: "Are the people of Canadian, Texas, very much like the people of Scottsbluff, NE?"

Although, not rocket science (or fine art) to know that you meant, "Can I assume that Texans and Nebraskans do not tolerate anything except a rural WASP?"

(To which I would answer, "Who you askin', Buddie?")

Spanish is used in Texas far more than in Nebraska. Oil industry vs. corn. Longhorns vs. Huskers. There are tons of differences here and there. What are you trying to figure out?

At first I was curious about how outgoing Nebraskans were, because the Texans that I've met are some of the most outgoing and friendly people I've ever met. Then, my curiosity just grew to encompass the entire state. Are there as many suburbs (commuting) in Nebraska as there are in Texas? 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?

No, there is not as strong of a commuter culture compared to other state's large cities. There are suburbs of Omaha like Papillion, LaVista, and Bellevue but they seem to me like they function on their own. Since the cost of living in Omaha is not drastically different than the suburbs around it and the city is not densely packed, there is not much of a reason for people to live outside Omaha. To me, Omaha does not have that "urban feel." I always felt as if Omaha is a giant suburb.

As for amenities, well there is the zoo, there are theatres, enough shopping, etc. But I doubt any of it will amount to the venues of Dallas or Austin. The arts scene isn't as outgoing here as it is in other large cities.

Summers are hot, but I doubt they are as hot as Texas (sorry, I was only in Houston a few years back so IDK for sure). Winters are particularly harsh here. Summers do indeed get hot, but I really don't think it would get as hot as Texas.

Diversity - this one is almost purely subjective. I would say no, but some people here would say yes. I will say though, that diversity is growing. There are more Hispanic and Asian immigrants coming in (and out) almost every day it seems. Omaha and Lincoln have a fairly noticeable amount of African-Americans. But you definitely can't compare it to Houston.
