NEWCOMERS

Welcome! We’re glad you’re here!

 

Greater Omaha is more than a great place to live; it’s a great place to be alive.

That’s the way we see it – and our We Don’t Coast Ambassadors are ready to help our newest residents see it too.

A booming live music scene. Incredible restaurants and local hangouts. Engaging arts and cultural offerings. We have easy access to them all and our Ambassadors can help you get plugged-in quickly. They know the lay of the land – a friendly resource for insights and recommendations, an easy way to cut straight to the best ‘things to do’ in town; a friend to help you find your place and hit the ground running.
