Fun Entertainment District in the Heart of OmahaFlag review
If you're going to explore Omaha the Old Market is a terrific central location. Many attractions are within walking distance, and those that aren't are easy to reach by hotel shuttle. Eat: The Twisted Fork- great American food with a twist. Portions are large. Be sure to try the Chicken Fried Bacon. Eat: Ted & Wally's Ice Cream - made fresh daily with fresh ingredients. Amazing flavors that change daily. Eat: Cupcake - I'll just say yum. Explore: Hollywood Candy - so much more than a candy store! You'll find an old-time soda fountain, arcade, more candy than you knew existed, and a theater (free). Explore: Gene Leahy Mall - at the north end of the Old Market. Man made lake with walking path. Artsy benches and a terrific pair of slides at one end. Shop: plenty of specialty shops to browse.
Tips for Families
Hyatt Place is a great hotel for the family (see review) When the Old Market gets busy on weekends take the kids to Hollywood Candy. Get some popcorn and settle in for a movie. They were showing Back to the Future when we visited. The Omaha Visitors Center is in the Old Market. Make that your first stop for information adn money saving coupons!
