“Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It’s perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we’ve learned something from yesterday.” –John Wayne

Greater Omaha, tomorrow is yours; and, in the bright-eyed race for regional renown, you’re winning.

More than heart, wider than open arms and bolder than a Crane Coffee Cafreddo, your everyone-is-welcome attitude means this creative, innovative, future-forward Metro is building toward tomorrow daily.

Take the Riverfront Revitalization Project, for example. Catalyzed by community leaders and powered by collaborative enthusiasm, this plan for inspired, thriving placemaking is creating an impressive space for entertainment and engagement on both sides of the river.

That’s right, from the Missouri River to Werner Park, the tide of change is rolling like Omaha Storm Chasers at a spring game.

Case in point: Mutual of Omaha is engaging high school students eager to tackle careers in tech with an upcoming Tech CENTS Tour May 2, while AIM Institute is offering AIM Interface: Evidence Based Innovation, a 10-week class to boost problem-solving with data-driven decision-making.

The learning continues with Human Resource Association of the Midlands’ May 9 “Twerminated, Facebagged, and NetWORKed: Social Media, Technology, and the Law,” a free program for HRAM members, offering insight on employer regulation of social media use and more.

With so many good things going on, you’ll want to gear up and get going, and Made in Omaha has the homegrown threads, treats and eats to power a trip or two around the region’s more than 120 miles of trails, popularized by The Running Men and threaded throughout the community.

Area outdoor adventurers will also enjoy an aerial experience opening at Fontenelle Forest this spring. From climbing to zip-lining, Fontenelle’s TreeRush Adventure Park promises a view of the forest floor from seven elevated trails constructed of wood, net, rope and cable.

If “tomorrow is the most important thing in life,” then there’s much to anticipate here in the heartland – and you’re exactly the individual to inspire incredible tomorrows.

Go get ‘em, Greater Omaha!
