What do you like about Omaha and what are your favorite secret spots? Coming from the West Coast, I wasn’t sure what to expect here in Omaha, but I love it! I love running the trails around the city, touring the cool old houses in Midtown, eating tasty sushi at Hiro 88 downtown, and going to Science Cafe events at the Slowdown.
