This is a nice area. It is full of many food, drink and shopping options. Not enough live entertainment for my taste, but otherwise a pleasant experience.

There is a great atmosphere for Old Market. The cobblestone streets lined with little boutiques will make you want to spend hours shopping. There are antique stores, candy stores, galleries, and many outdoor dining restaurants. There is even a hidden area that was so pretty. You need to find it! In the evening there are carriage rides. Lots of hotels... More

We were in town for a business meeting and over the course of 3 days went to several restaurants in the Old Market and walked all around it. It was just great and I would highly recommend. The area is extremely clean and kept up. It was very safe to walk around even at night and in walking distance from... More

Omaha has this area that is left in historical condition with cobble stone streets and lots of cool little places to eat (shopping is pretty limited though). If you want booze and food... Fri/Sat night is the most happening times.

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...

Old Market Omaha is always tons of fun with lots to do. It is just to bad and kind of annoying that a lot of the places are closed on Sundays.

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.
