5 Benefits of Retiring in Omaha, Nebraska

When you choose Ovation Heartwood Preserve, you’ve not only found a remarkable new home but a wonderful city to live in. Omaha is a friendly, vibrant town, offering everything a big city can — without the stress and exorbitant prices.

Here’s just a sampling of what makes Omaha such a great location for retirement.

High quality of life, low cost of living
You’ll find Omaha on a slew of “Best Places to Live” lists. The reason: an excellent quality of life combined with a lower cost of living than most of the country. You’ll pay less here for things like housing, groceries, healthcare, and more, so your retirement savings can go a lot further.

Excellent medical care
Omaha made the Kiplinger list of “12 Great Places to Retire for Your Good Health,” and one major reason is its first-rate medical care. The city is home to the University of Nebraska Medical Center, the Creighton University Medical Center, and many other excellent healthcare providers.

Theater and music events
One of the most exciting performance venues in Omaha is the Holland Performing Arts Center, which offers something for every taste — from Broadway shows to classical music to hip-hop. They also provide seating options for people with disabilities. 

Wonderful museums
Omaha is eagerly awaiting the 2024 reopening of the Joslyn Art Museum, whose collection includes major artists from Titian to Renoir to Jackson Pollock — and it’s currently offering events and art classes at other locations around town. For history buffs there’s the Durham Museum with exhibits of Omaha’s Wild West origins and much more. You’ll find other interesting museums here too, as well as many excellent art galleries.

Fun for your grandkids
To amuse your grandchildren when they visit — or to delight the child in you — plan a day at the world famous Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium, with wildlife ranging from the Butterfly Pavilion to Gorilla Valley. Omaha also has an interactive Children’s Museum that’s sure to keep everyone entertained.

Shopping and dining out
You’ll find a wide selection of malls and restaurants throughout the city. One of the most interesting is The Old Market — a historic destination in itself — where you’ll discover contemporary artists, antiques, and other special touches to make your new home at Ovation Heartwood Preserve unique.

Of course, with Ovation’s superb dining choices, entertainment, and activities, you’ll also find that life is pretty great right here at home.
