When Everything is Within Walking Distance, Nothing is out of Reach

Whether it's walking from your hotel to the convention center, or finding a great place to eat after the meeting, Omaha makes it simple.

Downtown Omaha’s Walkability rating is 85 which means, dining, shopping and entertainment options are blocks away from the city’s downtown convention center, and close to more than 3,000 downtown hotel rooms. Twelve blocks per mile means you can walk an Omaha block in a New York minute.

North Downtown is just a block from the convention center and close to TD Ameritrade Park, the city’s 26,000-seat stadium. NoDo is home to The Slowdown, considered one of the best indie music clubs in the country. The indie vibe continues next door at Film Streams' Ruth Sokolof Theater, which offers award-winning, artistic and independent films. The area also includes a coffee shop, specialty retailers, restaurants and several distinct bars.  

A favorite among meeting groups is Omaha's historic Old Market Entertainment District. Cobblestone streets lined with unique boutiques, galleries, and more than 80 locally owned restaurants, pubs, antique emporiums and tasty sweet shops. The Old Market is 6 blocks from the convention center, a quick 10-minute or less walk.
