  • With its many boutique retail stores, outdoor dining, and seasonal festivals, Midtown Crossing is a strong pull for the young professional and the downsizing retiree.
  • For the perfect cocktail of young and old head to often mispronounced Aksarben area, Nebraska spelled backwards. The Summer Arts Festival is hosted here as well as the largest weekly Farmer’s Market.
