About the City
City sits at the confluence of the Loup and Platte rivers, which provide a bounty of wildlife viewing, kayaking, hunting, fishing and beautiful sunrises and sunsets. It is a community of 24,000 and is one of the state's most progressive and dynamic communities. City offers a fair tax structure, strong educational systems, excellent childcare, several golf courses, and a variety of rich cultural events and exciting recreational opportunities. It is only 80 miles away from Omaha and Lincoln, Nebraska, which means the benefits of big entertainment, major airports and a key Big Ten Conference University (University of Nebraska-Lincoln), are just a short distance away.
