Omaha’s Downtown is much more than the Old Market District. Our downtown is a vibrant part of the city where people live, work and have fun. The area is generally thought of as 20th Street east to the river then Leavenworth to the south and Chicago to the north. It includes the Old Market, NoDo, Riverfront, Gene Leahey Mall and the former Jobbers Canyon.
Many corporations call Downtown Omaha their home with more moving to Omaha each year. Union Pacific Railroad has had its headquarters here since 1862. First National Bank, Gallup and Woodmen Life are also corporate anchors here.
Our Downtown lets you spend a day shopping with highlights in the Old Market and NoDo districts. You can spend an cultural evening at the Orpheum Theater or the Holland Center. The fine restaurants in the area have multiplied in recent years to areas outside the Old Market. A big change has been the increase of quality craft cocktails including our own speakeasy. Enjoy a beautiful day outside walking through the picturesque Gene Leahey Mall and then toward the river passing by Heartland of American Park.
The Downtown District is clean, growing and a great place to discover new places. Join a Nebraska Tour Company tour to learn more about the food and cocktails Downtown>
