I had the opportunity to stay within walking distance of the Old Market on a business trip. It was fun walking around the market. Many interesting gift shops and music stores to choose from. There is also a great variety of food and drink options.

Glad we stayed in the nearby Magnolia hotel. Quick walk to the market district. I was impressed with how revitalized and vibrant the area was. We traveled with two young children, and had a great time walking the area, going to different restaurants and shops.

Fun, fun, fun. Loved the candy shop, the Passageway, the shops, the tobacco shop, the old-timey feeling.

Look up the webpage for Old Market (I wasn't able to paste it here). It does mention a place that rents wheelchairs. Good luck!

Hotels near Dundee or Old Market that allow smoking? (1 Replies)
I know it's a filthy, disgusting habit. But I am traveling to Omaha this weekend and would like to stay in a decent hotel that would allow me to partake of my nasty vice while indoors. Any suggestions are appreciated!

All NE restaurants are smoke-free indoors. Some of them sit up a smoking section outside in nice weather.

Planning a weekend trip with my other half & 14 year old son. Going to see concert at Century Link Center on first night. Looking for suggestions other than the zoo to fill the weekend. Suggestions of local favorites welcome. Don't want to break the bank either. We all feel like we have seen the Old Market, so what else is there?

Hi there ! Well my first thought is that when I was 14 I would have loved to visit the Strategic Air and Space museum in Ashland, NE just a short distance from Omaha on I-80.

Depending on when you are here - the Omaha...More
