This may be quite an old part of Omaha or perhaps given a facelift. Whatever, Howard Street which seems to be the main thoroughfare is certainly a place to visit. It is a bustling street with many small shops and restaurants to get ones attention. The street buskers add almost a sense of how I perceive New Orleans.
At night there is a verve in the atmosphere and the street becomes even more alive with outdoor eating restaurants some with verandehs thronging with people.
Wandering around one of the streets behind Howard Street I cam across a nature photographers art gallery. Unfortunately I cannot remember the name of the gallery or road but if you do come across it do go in and look at the wonderful pictures of animals which can also be bought.
I also popped into the Om Center, which is opposite a quaint looking sidewalk clock in Howard Street, This shop beside offering therapy treatments and various New Age things has a small cafe for tea. Around the counter is an amazing coloured sand display made by Tibetan monks visiting the center. It really is worth visiting.
further along had a meal at Wheatfields which I enjoyed. I am not sure why there is some writing on the wall inside in german but perhaps the owner is or was German. If you like cakes or different sorts of bread this is a good place to visit.
If you like being driven around in a horse and carriage then there are some available here. I noticed there was one very suitable in design for a part in a Cinderella pantomime coming complete with crown over this white carriage.
This area is well known and therefore if you are visiting Omaha for the first time I think it would be unusual if you did not visit this colourful area and if you did not then it would be a shame.
