As parents of 4 we have visited our share of zoos. It was a cold, windy day in December but decided to give it a try. We arrived at opening and stayed until closing. We saw only a handful of people and had many of the attractions to ourselves. The dome was awesome and we had a hard time getting the kids to leave. This zoo should be on everyones bucket list, regardless of age or the time of year you are able to visit. Hats off to the young man working the elephant room!!

We love going to this zoo in Omaha. It’s rated one of the best in the world for a reason! So glad it is so close to home. We go at least once per year. The Halloween event during October is super fun for the whole family. Animals are well taken care of, and they literally have everything! Just as good as the San Diego zoo.

My boyfriend & I drove all the way from Madison, WI to here! My absolute favorite part of the venture, was an exhibit we had to pay a few extra dollars to go into. Trust me: it was worth it! I had the opportunity to pet live sting rays (there was nothing on the tails [no stingers])!?! That moment will live on, in my heart!

It was a freezing cold day in Omaha and of course why not go to the zoo.! It was great most of the exhibits are inside so it was perfect to help stay warm. They also have a IMAX to enjoy while you are there.
