We usually try to make it down there every month or so. Horse and buggy rides are a nice thing to do once in a while. Better than other... More

If you find yourself in Omaha you must stop at the Old Market. It is a beautiful historic area that is home to some neat shops and many of Omaha's best restaurants.

I've stayed in the Old Market area multiple times. We prefer the downtown Embassy Suites. There isn't a whole lot to do, unless you enjoy the bar scene. The shops are interesting, but expensive usually. There are a few great restaurants, like Spaghetti Works. I love staying in the area, but you definitely can find other places to spend more... More

This was our first visit to Omaha and the Old Market area so we visited the visitors center first to get our bearings and some recommendations. We shopped, walked and had a nice lunch. We were staying in the area and were being... More
