Omaha's blend of old and new
Long before most Midwest cities rediscovered their warehouse districts, stores and cafes thrived in downtown Omaha's Old Market buildings. Now, the lively area seems to belong in a larger city. Even on weeknights, shops stay open late, catering to dinner crowds.
That transformation is typical of what's happening elsewhere in this Missouri River city (metro population: 837,925). Visitors will find that the 1931 Union Station now boasts a dazzlingly restored Art Deco lobby and the Smithsonian-affiliated Durham Museum. The long-neglected Missouri riverfront is flourishing, too, thanks largely to the $291 million Qwest Center Omaha.
