    Valparaiso is located just 20 minutes north of Lincoln and 50 minutes from Omaha

    More than half of Nebraska's total population resides within the Metro Region. Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska's two largest cities, are surrounded by open space and farmland, creating a unique mix of rural and urban living. This is the cultural hub of Nebraska, with top-notch museums, art galleries and theater. There is much to experience here, from the state capitol in Lincoln, to the Joslyn Art Museum for the visual arts in Omaha. Lincoln's new Haymarket area is full of restaurants and night life too.

    Omaha's Old Market, a turn-of-the-century brick marketplace with brick streets, is home to many fine restaurants and quaint shops. The Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha is incredible and award winning.

    The museums in and around Lincoln touch on a wide variety of subjects, from Alexander Graham Bell's first telephones at the Frank H. Woods Telephone Pioneer Museum to the evolution of roller skating at the National Museum of Roller Skating (the only museum of its kind in the world). The University of Nebraska State Museum of Natural History and Mueller Planetarium in Lincoln is home to an outstanding collection of fossil elephants, a large selection of Nebraska fossils, dinosaurs and American Indian exhibits.

    Thousands of acres of unique saline wetlands are found in Lancaster and Sanders counties, in the area around Lincoln. The Lincoln Saline Wetlands Nature Center offers walking trails, scenic overlooks and informational programs. Closer to Raymond is the Little Salt Creek Wildlife Management Area, where open prairie and grasslands compliment the saline marshlands. After a day out and about, Lincoln's Historic Haymarket District is the perfect place to wind down at the end of the day.

    This beautifully restored warehouse district has fantastic restaurants, sidewalk cafes, galleries and unique shops. Excerpt from http://www.nebraskabb.com/region-metro.php
