Old warehouses have been turned into unique boutiques, shops, and restaurants! Very pedestrian friendly on very old cobblestone streets!

I absolutely loved this area. I only wish I had more time. I went with someone who isn't a shopper and also we had kids with us. Big mistake. Go with someone who doesn't mind walking and spending time. I will go back for sure.

Omaha has re-purposed its old warehouse district into a cool urban setting with much of the vintage charm (including brick streets, awnings and street signs intact).

We went to Omaha for a long weekend at the zoo with young children. We ended up eating dinner in the Old Market neighborhood just so I could say we went there. We only walked down 2 blocks, since the kids were worn out after a long day at the zoo, but I simply loved the feel of the area.... More

This is the reason why I visited, and I was not disappointed. The buildings and brick streets make this a very charming area. There are very many shops and restaurants in this area. The bars are open late, but not rowdy.

The Old Market is my favorite place in Omaha. It's cobblestone streets and old renovated buildings give it character. There are numerous places to dine and good shopping. It has adequate parking with a parking garage nearby.
