Omaha preserves its historic place in time in this historic section of town where visitors can stroll along the cobbled streets and explore the many preserved buildings.

Used to live in Omaha and enjoyed going back to the old market area. Lots of shops and restaurants. People smoking everywhere though and cigarette butts all over the sidewalks. Omaha needs to clean up this area.

I really love this area. There's always something going for individuals, couples, families and the elderly. Pets are welcome everywhere (with responsible owners). You can always find a street performer, food truck, local farmers market, etc...going on. I highly encourage visiting this area.

They have a wide variety of food options but fewer stores and boutiques than I expected. Something you may want to check out while in Omaha but not a priority.

Nothing here. Dirty pedastrian, ugly. Saw some people on drunk and sleep on road side in late nite (1030pm), dont feel safe. Restaurants and bars are pricy! Local government need to do something and clean the mess!

Easy walking area for eclectic shops and many food choices. Very few clothing stores. I believe it is a good starting point for visitors new to Omaha. The gentleman in the Visitor's Center was pleasant, knowledgeable and very helpful.

Very cool part of town. Good open air restaurants and bars with a lot of shopping opportunities. We visited a vinyl record shop and ate lunch in a bar. Ice cream shop had a line coming out the door. No ice cream for me.

I agree with everyone else's comments. You should check out the Old Market area downtown. There are several good restaurants down there including a few great chop houses with some of the best steaks in town! Then have a... More

There are some stores that carry vintage product but not as a stand alone store - at least to the best of my knowledge. We could have missed some of the stores. Still well worth the browse

The horse drawn carriage only goes through the Old Market area. I'm not sure of their policies. I think you pay for a specific time.
