Kearney, NE

Living in Kearney means residents don’t have to pick between living in a big city or a small town because it offers the perfect combination. Don’t believe us? This 30,000-resident community is known for its affordability and Midwest charm but brings it when it comes to amenities, offering those usually found only in much larger areas. Major employers like CHI Health Good Samaritan and Baldwin Filters call Kearney home, and with the University of Nebraska at Kearney in the area, residents have access to top education programs and sporting events. And speaking of sports, Kearney boasts the Tri-City Storm, a Tier 1 junior ice hockey team.
