Papillion: The City That Is Majestic as a Butterfly

Papillion, a city located in Sarpy County, Nebraska, lives up to its name, which was derived from the French term for butterfly, in terms of beauty and refinement. Recently, Papillion was voted one of the top 10 Best Places to Live in a review conducted by Money magazine. Papillion boasts the serenity of small town living with the conveniences and amenities of Omaha a mere twenty minutes away. Functioning as its own separate entity, however, Papillion has many of its own recreational opportunities that will leave residents feeling content for years to come. Enjoy a live play, musical performance, or film screening at the SumTur Amphitheater, find fresh produce and baked goods at the Papillion Farmer’s Market, or experience the best round of golf you’ve ever played at the Eagle & Tara Hills Golf Course. If you’re feeling up to the trip to Omaha, the big city holds many unique surprises: see a show at the historic Orpheum Theater, savor renowned Omaha steakhouses such as Gorat’s on Center Street, or visit the Henry Doorly Zoo, one of the premier zoos in the world. Whether you're in Papillion or Omaha, fun and excitement await.
