Visit The Safari Park In Nebraska That Was Named The Best In The Nation
Nebraska has a pretty famous zoo in Omaha – perhaps you’ve heard of it? But that’s not the only remarkable animal display we have to offer. Some 20 miles away sits the Lee G. Simmons Conservation Park and Wildlife Safari. It’s affiliated with the Omaha Zoo and shares the zoo’s quest for conservation, but it’s an entirely different experience.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
Address: 16406 292nd Street, Ashland, NE, 68003. If you’re getting there on I-80, take exit 426. The park closes for the winter every year, so be sure to plan your visit for the warmer months. Check out its website for more information and upcoming special events.
