Fall in love with all the lovely things to do (and eat!) at Midtown Crossing

Midtown Crossing, nestled at the intersection of everything Omaha, is one of the most cozy, romantic spots in town. Easy to get to, plenty of covered parking in the area, new retailers and a thriving urban core neighborhood, this charming center will delight you in so many ways this wintry season.

The Season of Lights will be ending soon! But wait, there’s more fun ahead!

Oh, those glorious lights. Midtown Crossing’s Season of Lights. You’ve seen them driving by. And if you haven’t, you’re in for an incredible surprise. Tens of thousands of white LED lights strung throughout Turner Park and along Farnam Street can only mean one thing – peace, tranquility and arguably one of Omaha’s most cherished traditions. Take a brisk evening stroll around the magnificent Turner Park with a loved one. But hurry! You’ve only got a few more days before the lights are removed for the season. 

Be sure and check out Cupid’s Market, sponsored by Waxing the City, this Sunday, February 12 from 11 am to 3 pm. Tell your guy you’ll be back for the game. Or, better yet, you’ll meet him at Ray’s Wings, Pizza and Drinks. You and your girlfriends can splurge on fun local and boutique finds.  Delightful candles, creative stationary, boutique clothing and so much more. Sip while you shop on a Be Mine Mimosa or Sweetheart Sangria. And check this out! It’s nestled in the Empire Room – the luxurious, French Chateau-style event venue located in the heart of midtown Omaha. A huge thanks to Waxing the City for sponsoring this delightful event!
