With the historic Old Market, new RiverFront project, and variety of attractions from restaurants to performing arts venues, downtown Omaha is an exciting place to be. Those who live close to the heart of the city are able to easily access its most valued amenities — or their place of work and other day-to-day necessities. And because Omaha is a relatively smaller city, there are several residential areas near the heart of downtown, providing a laid-back neighborhood feel.
Let’s zero in on some centrally located houses for sale in Omaha, each of which is less than 10 minutes from the center of downtown. These ideal locations make getting around the city extra convenient — and many are even within walking distance of hotspots, parks, schools and other attractions. After all, you can change a lot of things about a house, like the paint color, light fixtures, or even the entire layout, but there’s one thing you cannot change: its location!
