Things To Do

The Wedding Website of Sophie Lee and Benson Chen
Here's a few of our favorite places in the immediate area — feel free to ask us for more recommendations on things to see or do!

The Fat Putter

111 North 10th Street, Omaha, NE 68102

We love this spot! This fun indoor mini golf spot has 4 interactive 9-hole courses and is right across the street from the hotel.

Old Market Farmers Market

519 South 11th Street, Omaha, NE 68102

Every Saturday from 8 am - 12:30 pm. Local makers, food, and farmers!

Hollywood Candy

1209 Jackson Street, Omaha, NE 68102

This isn't your typical candy store...peruse their impressive collections of local tchotchkes, including one on local celebrity and billionaire Warren Buffet (look for the Warren Buffet rubber ducky...next to the Bill Gates rubber ducky! hehe), or check out their neat pinball game collection, vinyl collection, and fully-functioning, old-timey diner.

Brickway Brewery & Distillery

1116 Jackson Street, Omaha, NE 68102

There's a number of great local breweries, and this one's our favorite in the area. There's a great ongoing deal: Buy 1 pint, get 1 for a penny. Sign up for the Penny Pack deal from the link (View) below. Then stop by the nearby Visitors' Center for a free souvenir flight glass :)

Ted & Wally's Ultra-Premium Ice Cream

1120 Jackson Street, Omaha, NE 68102

We need to caveat this recommendation with the confession that this isn't our favorite local ice cream (it's Coneflower Creamery, no competition). But, Ted & Wally's has been a local institution since 1987, there's always a line in the summer, AND nowhere else have we ever seen, heard of, or had the chance to try 20% butterfat ice cream. O_O

The Durham Museum

801 South 10th Street, Omaha, NE 68108

This is a neat little museum housed inside a converted railroad station, with lovely exhibits on local history, as well as old railcars you can walk through and a temporary lego exhibit.

The Amazing Imaginarium

1113 Howard Street, Omaha, NE 68102

Take a walk down memory lane with EVERY POSSIBLE TOY THAT HAS EVER EXISTED all in one place. This store has a truly impressive vintage toy collection.

Gene Leahy Mall at The RiverFront

1001 Douglas Street, Omaha, NE 68102

Newly completed in 2022, the park has lovely lounging areas, water features, sculptures, playgrounds, and some nice views of the downtown.

Heartland of America Park at The RiverFront

800 Douglas Street, Omaha, NE 68102

This beautiful new park borders the riverfront and just opened up!

Block 16

1611 Farnam Street, Omaha, NE 68106

Alton Brown calls their Croque Garcon his favorite hamburger in the country, with the perfect meat-to-bun ratio.
