Reed Moore’s Things To Do In The Spring
Have Fun in the Old Market
The Old Market
The Old Market is a great place to find something going on any given day or night in downtown Omaha. And this cultural/shopping hub & neighborhood is great for spending time outdoors this spring.
No matter what you’re in the mood for, there’s something here for you. Chow down in some amazing eateries, unwind at plenty of pubs ranging from homey to lively, hear some of the great buskers make sweet and righteous music on the corners, and shop until you drop at tons of quality apparel outlets.
Moreover, if you’re looking to get more immersed in the arts, there’s plenty of great live music venues and art galleries ready to be explored. Or get tickets to a performance at the Orpheum Theater.
Undeniably, the Old Market is a vital source of Omaha’s day and nightlife. Mask up and seize the day.
