The Old Market is Omaha's most historic neighborhood popular with locals and visitors alike. The cobblestone streets are home to a diverse mix of shopping, galleries, restaurants, taverns and people-watching.

No Old Market Visit is complete without trying Ted & Wally's premium homemade ice cream. Flavors change daily so plan accordingly.

Go for a walk to Iowa with Bob the Bridge! It is not often you can stand in two EPSCoR jurisdictions at once with a beautiful view of the iconic Missouri River. As you know, every good bridge has a troll. Find Omar, the Bob's troll,  to take a fun picture and rub his toes for good luck.
