The Old Market is a collection of shops and restaurants. Cobblestone streets and converted loft space. Parts of it almost have a New Orleans / French Quarter feel to it. Many Omaha icons of varying quality (but icons nonetheless) are still located here - Spaghetti...More

Not good for anyone who is unsteady on their feet. There’s a cobblestone street that’s pretty rough and also the sidewalks had not been cleared well after a big snow a couple weeks earlier, so the snow has been well compacted into ice. Lots of...More

Old market had a selection of any and everything to do and try. We walked around all the shops. Staff were so nice except for a wine place. They were rude and we left which was sad because we would have loved to buy wine...More

Before the show, we select a restaurant to have supper. Nicola's is a favorite! There is a restaurant for all tastes. Plenty of ethnic choices along with American standards. Mr. Toad's is our goto for a quiet drink after dinner.

A great place to visit during the Christmas season. Beautiful lights and the shops are opened with great decorations. The young children would love it.

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. All manner of military aircraft and some rocketry are displayed indoors. Educational exhibits / movies. Most 14 year olds would probably find things like the Joslyn Art museum and the Durham Western Heritage Museum boring, I know I would have then but I like them now. Depending on when you are here - the Omaha...More
