The communities of Ralston, Papio-La Vista, Bellevue, Gretna, and Bennington have remained, so far, suburban cities to Omaha, while Westside, Millard, and Elkhorn have been annexed in Omaha's continious westward expansion.

The best to describe the location of West Omaha would be to mirror the boundariy of Omaha Burke Public High School: generally west of interstate 680 to 144th street, West Center to Blondo streets. The Millard community, to the west and south, is often inappropriately lumped in with West Omaha and Elkhorn takes up the rest of Douglas county further west. Westside/District 66 is to the east, while Northwest Omaha is deservedly seperate.72nd and Dodge is still considered by many to be the center of Omaha, but in reality 120th is more geographically correct and the heart of West Omaha. Outside the city limits but nearby are the communities of Gretna, Ralston, and Papillion La Vista, Navigating West Omaha's roads are typically stress free, until you run into the ever present road construction. The Dodge street overpass is heavily traveled but rarely at a stand still while the interstate system shouldering the eastern border will take you just about anywhere in under 20 minutes.
A tax rate higher than the surrounding communities doesn't appear to affect Westside housing demand. Proximity to two of Omaha’s major hospitals - Methodist/Children’s Hospital and Medical Center and CHI Bergan Mercy accounts for a considerable number of upscale homes in the surrounding neighborhoods. You'll also find streets of historic (Loveland), Mid Century Modern (Rockbrook), and affordable homes (Westgate, Hillside).
