These sights show the Omaha of today is distinctly different to what it was 20 years ago. It saw changes that first reshaped its arts and entertainment district - the Old Market. This reborn district used warehouse buildings and placed unique shops, and galleries inside. But this area saw more than trendy shopping malls, but was a setting for movie About Schmidt by Alexander Payne, Omaha born film-maker.
From the Old Market area take a stroll over the world's longest pedestrian bridge spanning the Missouri River. The city is located in the Missouri Valley covering the area of 118.9 square miles and populated by 390,007 people.
Native Americans were the first settlers in the area and by the early eighteenth century a group of Indians shared this territory. On July 21, 1804, William Clark and Meriwether Lewis noted the area to be excellent for trading and later fur trade made the early income of the city. After Omaha experienced a rail boom that led to the development of bars, gambling houses and hotels.
