Located close to downtown Lincoln and adjacent to Antelope Park, this combination zoo and botanical garden is a fun and inexpensive way to spend a day with the kids. Don't expect the typical run down petting zoo, though: the collection of more than 300 animals contains a wide range of exotic beasts, including alligators, leopards, sloths and flamingos, just to name a few species. In addition to the animal exhibits, more than 400 species of plants are attractively displayed throughout the zoo. Kids can also ride on the zoo's miniature railroad, visit the gift shop or dine at Valentino's Safari Cafe. Check website for varying dates.
This beautiful state park covering 700 acres of verdant land with two lakes has all that an outdoor lover could ask for. Fishing, hiking, swimming, horseback trail rides, indoor driving range and more is available all year round. Special winter fun includes sledding, cross country skiing and ice skating. For a different taste, you can book the dinner and theater package. This popular park overlooking the Platte river valley also offers cozy, modern cabins are for rent.
Make sure the car windows sparkle before embarking on this drive-through adventure. A road leads visitors through several different lands featuring Sandhill Cranes, antelope, deer and a large buffalo herd. Although on display, most of the animals freely roam this corner of the county. A special section called Wolf Woods does require a short walk. While out of the car, be sure to check out the interactive nature exhibits and gift shop. All facilities are accessible to the physically challenged.
Of the area's most challenging golf courses, this one offers the best views while playing it. Designer John LaFoy took advantage of the natural peaks, dips and lush setting of Nebraska's Platte River Valley. The championship course is diverse, featuring a half-island green on the 17th hole. You do not have to be the best of the best to play here. All skill levels are welcome. Players will appreciate the state-of-the-art practice range.
