La Vista: Where small town meets the big city
Welcome to Nebraska’s youngest and fastest-growing city. La Vista also happens to be the second city in Sarpy County to be named for its remarkable setting, adopting the Spanish translation for “the view.”
Take one look around and you’ll immediately see that La Vista is a thriving, forward-thinking place. A close-knit community with big-city conveniences, La Vista offers a rich diversity of restaurants, retail stores, and specialty shops along the main streets and nestled within quaint neighborhoods.
Outdoor enthusiasts are drawn to the city’s miles of walking trails surrounded by lush landscaping and mature oak and maple trees. Twelve city parks offer prime real estate for picnicking, playing Frisbee, and just plain getting away from it all.
In April and October, La Vista plays host to a biannual kite festival. Kite flyers from all over the world flock to these two-day events, flooding the broad Nebraska skies with color, shape, and spirit.
Throughout the summer, La Vista hosts a variety of events, including summer concerts, outdoor movie nights, a dynamite summer reading program at the La Vista Public Library and even an adventure race!
Every Memorial Day weekend, the town celebrates their annual Salute to Summer festival in Central Park with a carnival, vendor booths, community cookout and fireworks display, beer garden, contests, music, and a parade.
Southport West is home to a Cabela’s destination store, which offers an interactive shopping experience like no other and are monuments to the outdoor lifestyle.
The Embassy Suites and La Vista Conference Center were recently recognized as the best in the world for the third consecutive year, and when combined with the Courtyard by Marriott,you have more than 60,000 square feet of event space for all your meeting needs.
