Lee G. Simmons Conservation Park and Wildlife Safari

Drive-through adventure zoo's road leads visitors through several different 'lands' featuring Sandhill Cranes, antelope, deer and a large buffalo herd. Most of the animals freely roam this corner of the county. All can be seen from visitors' cars, but Wolf Woods section requires a short walk. The interactive nature exhibits can be explored hile out of the car.

Reviewed By John S - Saint Clair, Michigan

Nice park, clean and reasonably priced (I think two adults were about $7.50 each). We drove for over an hour and got out to see some of the bird areas and also the bears and wolves. It was a very good experience. Feeding the animals was not allowed.

I have visited this shrine in the past and it's a wonderful place to visit. I had wanted to show some friends this shrine while driving through Nebraska only to find the main road to the shrine closed.

Baker's Candies

Reviewed By Bob S - Omaha, Nebraska

Once you walk into the shop the smell of chocolate is wonderful. They have a large selection of their famous Baker's chocolates in the shiny foil wrappers, and a huge selection of other candies and homemade items. The problems is-what to buy. Everything looks and tastes delicious. A neat little store to visit if you're in the area.

Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum

The Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum is a museum focusing on aircraft and nuclear missiles of the U. S. Air Force. The objective of the Museum is to preserve and display historic aircraft, missiles, and space vehicles and provide STEM education sessions to the young generation. The Museum is a $29.5 million, 300,000-square-foot (28,000 m2) building that features a glass atrium, two aircraft display hangars, a traveling exhibit area, a children's interactive gallery, a 200-seat theater, a museum store, an aircraft restoration gallery, and a snack bar. The glass atrium is constructed of 525 glass panels that encase a Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird. The Museum hosts regular travel exhibitions and several special events throughout the year. The Museum's Education Department is committed to fueling the curiosity of children across the Midwest and to educating them in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM). Regular STEM sessions, workshops and camp programs are available at the Museum.

This museum is well worth a visit. It was better than we expected. In addition to a top-notch B-17, there were a lot of unique and personally-interesting exhibits. Planes I've seen nowhere else included a huge B-36 and a tiny XF-85 fighter/escort designed to be released from a "parent" bomber (an unsuccessful experiment, ultimately).

As a kid, my dad saw a wing tank fall off of a jet fighter in Corpus Christi, TX. When I saw the F-84 Thunderjet at the museum, I realized for the first time that it must have been the fighter my dad had spoken of so many years ago. That was cool.

Our favorite part of the visit was a tour given by a volunteer who had piloted B-36s and B-52s. It's not every day, or every visit to a museum, that you get to hear first-hand stories that bring the planes to life. The way he remembered the men he had lost was very touching. I highly recommend taking the tour if you can.

Pine Grove RV Park

Reviewed By Sally L - Yacolt, Washington

No internet except for one device per site. Bad roads. Laundry not so good. No information on how to use the machines. Wouldn't cash a check to get quarters for the tiny washers. Too close to the highway and a car racing track. No sleep. Sites are large enough so got two stars.

Eugene T. Mahoney State Park

Reviewed By Jerry F - Ashland, NE

We recently attended a 50th Anniversary Party held in one of the 6 bedroom, new, cabins. The cabin is beautiful & we would highly recommend it as a place to stay if you have a large group. Downside was that all 6 bedrooms had just 1 bed, so no way to bunk up several kids. Upside was that the living/dining room, kitchen, and balcony were perfect for the large group. The park itself is worth the trip & the daily entrance fee.

At first I thought the layout of this mall was odd, but when the rain started the way the mall was setup offered more protection than the regular outside mall. Tons of stores, great prices, and located right off the highway!

Nothing fancy just basic aquariums with fish native to our state. Kids love looking at fish. There are a few activities and a movie to watch. We saw a Turkey outside the door and walked over to the pond in the park to feed the fish and ducks.

Visit the beautiful lodge style winery to taste a wide variety of award winning wines from dry to sweet vinted and bottled on site. Enjoy a glass or bottle of wine on our expansive deck with scenic views that stretch for miles. Most days you'll even get a chance to visit with the owners. An experience like no other!

Reviewed By Jerry F - Ashland, NE

We've been several times, haven't written a review previously, but certainly should have! The back deck view is amazing; the staff is very attentive even on the busiest days. Love their wines, we nearly always take a bottle or 2 home with us. Fun to look at the wine merchandise. We'd recommend the cheese plate to go with the wine you'll be enjoying.

What a nice place to stop! A very cool art and wine bar. Service was really friendly and helpful. Enjoyed their semi sweet red and really enjoyed the cold press cider. We enjoyed the appetizer plate with goat cheese, bread and olives as well as pretzels and dipping mustard. A cute local place!
