I visited Nebraska 2 years ago the end of July and had a wonderful
time. 1. Omaha has a wonderful zoo, the Henry Doorly Zoo. Normally,
I don't care for zoos, but I loved this one. The jungle section is
toured by walking up a spiral ramp. As one progresses from the
ground up into the high towering tree tops, one sees different
animals and plants. The penguin exhibit was wonderful, too. There
were also many zoo volunteers and employees there to explain the
exhibits. 2. One very good thing to eat when in Nebraska is the
sweet corn. It is served on-the-cob in the summer and is wonderful.
3. Many years ago European (Czech, German) immigrants settled in
that area and you might see some folk festivals and regional (county)
fairs that reflect their culture and cusine. Congratulations on your
choice of areas to visit. Have a wonderful trip.
