The busy part of town and the place to go for a meal if you're visiting Omaha. Alot of restaurants and not much else although there are some touristy shops. Quite a small district. Didn't take long to walk around and see everything.

Our second time visiting the Old Market Area in Omaha. It offers some great restaurants and shops. I recommend visiting this area and walking through the shops. Dining is very good with many options for travelers.

Friday early evening and we went for a walk from our hotel and strolled through Old Market looking for a place to eat. Quaint brick streets lined with old buildings holding bars, restaurants, boutiques, ice cream and cupcake shops. Horse drawn carriages and beautiful flowers. Found the best shop for children's toys. Play+rooms. The owner was very helpful. They also... More

We LOVED walking around Old Market. While I was researching places to stop in Omaha I came across the reviews for Old Market; they don't match what I experienced. It's so darling! Lots of history at every corner, it seems like each building has a story to tell. All kinds of shops, hand crafted metal pieces, pottery, jewelry. Hair salons,... More

Artsy, eclectic, bars, food, clothing, bookstores. A nice variety of places to see and visit. Lots of uneven walkways makes walking tricky for some people.

We recently spent two days in Omaha. We were thrilled that downtown is very walkable and bikeable! Loved, the Old Market area. Went to the Farmer's Market in the morning, came back for the Taco Food truck at lunch, and later that night for dinner!
