I spent a week here in the historic Old Market District of Omaha this past April on business. I had originally opted for a hotel on the west end of town.

The Old Market has some interesting shops to browse in and shop. I do not get down to that part of town very often. Besides the shops there are the restaurants.

Brick streets and 100 year old buildings filled with quaint shops and tons of great eating! Really nice for a leisurely stroll. Bordered on the east by the newly developed river front with renovations of previously abandoned buildings pushing to the west. Occasional street performers and visual artists. Very nice for those who appreciate an older area of the city.

The ambiance is Omaha, 1935. Lots of restaurants – many outstanding. And there are dozens of shops for clothing, collectables, Christmas stuff, music, art, you name it. For the locals there is usually a destination.

Many novelty shops, hotels, bars, and great food selections. Tons to see and a short walk to the river, the Conagra fountain, downtown, theatres, the pedestrian bridge, the Qwest Center, and the new baseball stadium.

Besides the Henry Doorly Zoo (#1 in the world), the Old Market has been rated one of the top places to visit in the state. Saturday's Farmer's Market is big with crafts, jewelry, other arty things, food tents besides local produce. Many shops and galleries and good restaurants. A number one place to visit when at the College World Series.
