Omaha, located in the eastern part of Nebraska on the west bank of the Missouri River, is the largest city in the state. The arrival of the Union Pacific transcontinental railroad in 1869 made the city a major transportation hub. The region is one of America's centers for grains, livestock and food processing. Today, Omaha has a population of around 409,000 in the city and about 865,000 in the metropolitan area, with a diverse economy that has retained its core agricultural products but expanded to include banking, insurance, telecommunications and other high-technology industries. Top corporations headquartered in Omaha include Ameritrade, Berkshire Hathaway, ConAgra Foods, Mutual of Omaha, Union Pacific Railroad, Sitel Corporation and West Teleservices. Nearby Offutt Air Force Base, home of the US Strategic Command, is a major employer.
Omaha has a vibrant nightlife, centered around the Historic Old Market district, a renovated downtown area loaded with restaurants, bars and clubs.
