America's 10 best small towns
City name: Papillion, Nebraska
Located just about 9 miles south of Omaha, Papillion's low unemployment, affordable housing, high quality of life, and low crime rate set it apart from other communities across in the state and country.
“Our community has now been rated among the very best place to live for the better part of a decade,” said Papillion's mayor David Black. “That consistency is remarkable and further proof that Papillion really is a special place. But before you start looking at real estate, know that the average low temperature in January is a frosty 12 degrees F.
Papillion means "butterfly" in French, and that symbol -- along with the founding year of 1870 -- are featured together on the city's seal.
