Within a few blocks of easy walking is the very attractive and charming Old Market. Cobblestone- like (brick, actually) streets, flower boxes everywhere, horse drawn carriages if you wish to go on a ride (not too many of them, thankfully- that can get messy), and more excellent restaurants, lively bars and tea, coffee and wine shops than you could imagine...

Great collection of bars, restaurants and shops. A great place to roam and spend some time. We had both a good breakfast and dinner there and purchased a few things from a gallery.

There are lots of shops, hotels, bars, and restaurants to choose from in the Old Market. My favorite shop is the Imaginarium. They have tons of antiques and vintage items that will keep you looking for hours. Rock Bottom and Upstream Brewery are very good places to eat. Hollywood Candy is a cool store where you can get candy that... More

We stayed at the Hyatt Place hotel in the Old Market area. Nice restaurants and fun shopping within walk distance. Close proximity to the zoo--about a 5 minute drive. There are dogs all over the area. Something to take into consideration if someone is afraid of dogs. Went to the Farmers' Market. Very nice.

This area is quaint, interesting as a slice of earlier Omaha. There are large parking lots on the perimeter that allow you to park once, enjoy a meal, and walk over the bridge to the Durham Museum or a mile the other way for a baseball game or performance at the Century Link area. We weren't impressed with shopping options... More

I was with my sister, nephew (15) and daughter (5) while exploring the market. It was fun and clean. My daughter enjoyed the magician street performer. I love antiquing, so this was my place! I found some books, some old pictures, and of course we enjoyed some candy from the old fashioned candy shops! There are so many restaurants to... More

This may be quite an old part of Omaha or perhaps given a facelift. Whatever, Howard Street which seems to be the main thoroughfare is certainly a place to visit. It is a bustling street with many small shops and restaurants to get ones attention. The street buskers add almost a sense of how I perceive New Orleans. At night... More

Nice place if you want to spend money. I would have liked fewer restaurants and more shops. There's a nice second hand bookstore, but watch out, the prices on the books aren't marked and the books are VERY expensive.
