How To Bleisure: Mixing Work And Leisure Travel In Omaha

Travel trend or simply the hot work reality for a growing generation of freelancers, entrepreneurs, (and yes, employees with side-hacks), frequent travelers are mixing R&R with how they are earning a living. It’s a trend that is increasing a lifestyle choice, not completely a business necessity (according to travel insights site Skift). So whether you are a remote worker or freelancer or digital nomad looking for a change of scenery or simply someone looking for collaborative space and great WiFi (plus opportunity to network like the locals) here are the how to and where insights on networking in Omaha.

Name: Peter Frei, Partner, Dundee Advisors Location: Lives and works in Omaha, Nebraska for the vibe, community, and ambition.

Peter’s recommendations:

· Best power breakfast: Lisa’s Radial Cafe · For the business lunch: Jams · The “only locals know this place” to start the day: Archetype Coffee on 40th and Farnam · Mid-day meeting place: Beansmith Coffee (Harney and 13th) · Work options for night-owls: Omaha Startup Collaborative · Favorite neighborhood restaurant: Pitch Pizza · Favorite bar: Harney St. Tavern

And Peter’s fit-in-like-a-local suggestions:

· To seek inspiration: Memorial Park · Wardrobe and business essentials: “Eh, kinda whatever is comfortable” · Events for combining work and play: Creighton Basketball Games · Co-working space: Omaha Startup Collaborative · Place to unplug and recharge: Henry Doorley Zoo · Don’t Miss: College World Series

Last local word: “Warren Buffet lives here. Nuff said.”
