A Family Environment

Offutt AFB

Offutt is located about 10 minutes outside of Omaha. What you can't find in Bellevue, you can find in Omaha. We have found this place to be a good environment for our family. The schools here are awesome. We live about 2 miles from the Kenney gate. The base housing here is old and small, so we chose a house just a block away. We are only a block away from the base pool, theatre, youth center, gas station and golf course. We feel safe in our neighborhood. It is also nice being only minutes within shopping. We decided to rent a house since we were told we would only be here for two years. Lots of friends bought and don't seem to be having too much trouble selling. There are many, many parks. If you like bike riding, this is the place to be. There are miles and miles of trails! We are fond of the park by the Missouri River and there is another park called Walnut Creek that has a 3 mile walking trail around a fishing lake. There is a nice zoo in Omaha, Men's World Series, & lots of museums. This summer, we enjoyed ET Mahoney State Park which features a very affordable water park, fishing lake, horseback riding, biking, park, and indoor park. We found it a little more challenging to find entertainment during the winter months only because we weren't familiar with having snow. There are places to ski, sled and ice skate. The Quest center also offers many shows during the year. I guess I could just go on and on. The only negative thing I can say about this place is that the local food isn't our style. If you love Mexican food, you will not find it here. It does get really cold here in the winter and can be windy from time to time. Overall, it is great place to live.
