OMAHA, Neb., March 11, 2019 — Unmarried iniduals may have found a new place to call home: Omaha.
The region today announced it was named one of Insurify’s Best Cities for Singles. Award recipients were determined by an analysis of single populations, economic benefits and dating opportunities in cities across the country.
With the US Census reporting the largest number of unmarried adult Americans in history – more than 110 million – researchers are saying Omaha might have the right mix of what singles want.
Case in point: Amenities, such as craft breweries, arts and entertainment and sporting options abound in Omaha, with Livability calling the region “the best place to eat in America right now.”
“Though Omaha may not necessarily be the first place you think of when it comes to thriving culinary scenes, this Nebraska city has flown under the radar long enough — it’s time to tell the world how delicious Omaha is,” writes Livabiliity’s Sarah Kuta in her November, 2018 “Best Places” article.
Unmarried adults are seeking more than just sustenance, however, notes sociologist Eric Klinenberg. His landmark book, Going Solo, suggests un-partnered people care acutely about environmental issues, experience improved mental health over their married counterparts and are highly civically engaged.
A No. 14 Most Caring City in America, according to WalletHub, Omaha stands out as a region that cares, and ranks high on WalletHub’s 38 “indicators of a compassionate spirit.”
The region’s self-proclaimed “we don’t coast, we care” philosophy might also explain the city’s status as one of Livability’s 2019 Top 100 Best Places to Live, outpacing more than 1,000 metros with populations between 20,000 and 1,000,000.
“The cities on this year’s list represent the best of the best when it comes to affordability and opportunity,” says Livability.com Editor-in-Chief Winona Dimeo-Ediger. “These 100 cities are not just fantastic places to live in terms of their amenities, education, health care and infrastructure, they are places where young people can build amazing careers and communities.”
