Is Omaha a Good Place to Live?

The definitions and geographical boundaries of the 14 communities of greater Omaha metro are not without debate but all will agree that each of them contribute something special to Omaha. 

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.

An easy way to define these communiites is by their school district boundaries that have remained independant of Omaha while many of the local Omaha Public School High schools boundaries can help distinquish the remaining internal communities of Omaha such as Downtown, Midtown, South Omaha, North Omaha, Northwest Omaha, and West Omaha
