Enjoy the state. Enjoy the state of mind.
The environment is not something we take for granted in Nebraska. It’s our mission, through assistance and regulations, to protect the quality of our air, water and land resources. We’re proud of our clean state…and intend to keep it that way.
Find the best of both worlds in Nebraska. The energizing hustle of our urban areas and the thriving culture in our rural ones. Either way, you’ll be noticeably welcomed.
Low Cost of Living
Of course, money doesn’t buy happiness, but less expense sure does ease the mind. Nebraska ranks lower than the national average on housing, utilities, transportation, and health costs.
Nebraska has a whole lot to be proud of, and it pulls out all the stops when it comes to education. From early childhood to higher ed, our school systems, administrators, and faculty are personable, hands-on, and committed to providing the best possible learning environment.
The average Nebraskan has an 18-minute commute to work. Think of all the things you can do with the time saved—be early for dinner, kiss your kids goodnight, extend your happy hour. You will have to shorten your commute playlists, though. Sorry.
Vast Outdoor Recreation
We love the outdoors. Each of our dynamic four seasons provides a variety of fun. Enjoy the abundance of trails in the summer, the crisp foliage of fall, sledding in a white winter, and the vibrant flowers in spring. It all makes for an incredible year.
Nebraska is a fiscally conservative state that has long operated with no debt. The state’s unicameral—a one-house legislature—is a model for efficient, accessible, results-driven government.
Not only is it a safe environment, it’s a friendly environment. People say “hello” in passing. They actually mean it when they ask, “How are you?” Simply put, people care. And when that happens, safe neighborhoods happen.
Here’s a rare combination for you: Nebraska boasts state-of-the-art technology, personal care and lower-than-average medical bills. You won’t find all of these qualities in healthcare anywhere else. We hope you and your family never need it, but we do have extraordinary healthcare services. Just in case.
