The Old Market is a must visit when in Omaha. If you can stay within walking distance, all the better to enjoy the restaurants and bars. Some of the shopping is not as unique as it used to be, but still some nice shops. The Underground Passage is fun. More art galleries are popping up in the area, so check brochures.

Nice little old-fashioned area of downtown Omaha, similar to Quincy Market in Boston. Lots of shops and boutiques, interesting dining options, and bars. Covers both family interests and upscale fine dining.

One huge downside is parking. Omaha really misses the boat by not closing off those charming bricked streets and allowing expanded space for cafes al fresco dining and drinking. It's a shame and they should add that to be more in line with big cities.

The Omaha Old Market is a wonderful area of shopping, eating and entertainment. We especially like to go and wander the streets on beautiful evenings, listen to the street musicians, grab a drink on a patio and eat at one of several favorite restaurants in the area. Be prepared to pay for parking on most evenings.

While this is called the Old Market, the only thing really old is the street. The night life is new, young, and hot, the restaurants are outstanding, the stores offer sophisticated and quirky options for local shopping, and the adjactent riverwalk is captivating.
