Henry Doorly Zoo. It was listed on TripAdvisor.com as one of Omaha's top attractions and we weren't disappointed. Although the weather was a bit uncooperative at times with periods of light rain and some high humidity, we still had a nice time. I do think that we're getting old, however, as we were pretty tired out by the end of the day.
We arrived when the gates opened at 9 AM and were tired out by 4 PM (closing time currently is 5 PM). We did not get a chance to see all of the exhibits. I would suggest spending 2 days to really take in the entire experience and get an opportunity to see a lot of the handler "feeding" and "training" sessions.
We noticed while exiting the large "Rosenblatt" sign toward the edge of the parking lot. Rosenblatt Stadium was the former home of the College World Series. It opened in 1948 and closed in 2010. The stadium was demolished in 2012, but the scaled down infield was built as a tribute to the old stadium. The right and left field foul lines are still in the exact position in which they were when the stadium was still in use. The foul poles still stand.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
