Atlantic writer Nona Willis Aronowitz spent six weeks traveling the U.S. in search of "the best, most affordable places for twentysomethings to achieve their goals nowadays — whether it's to start a business, live off their art, have kids earlier, or just finally find a full-time job."
For its ongoing series, "Where Millennials Can Make It," The Atlantic broke these Millennial meccas into four categories: The Gems Next Door, Budget Boom Towns, Towns Luring Back Their Townies and Small Ponds for Big Fish. Omaha falls into this last category.
The Small Ponds for Big Fish cities, Aronowitz writes, "are cities where creativity and entrepreneurship are on the rise, even as the rents remain reasonable."
The article highlights Omaha's DIY art scene, "thriving start-up economy" and low cost of living.
