And of course, the millions of dollars the zoo generates.

Not from me. lol It's been about 30 years since I was at Henry Doorly. But then, I can count on one hand the number of times I've been to Omaha at all.

You're missing out on something special... Omaha's zoo is truly one of the best in the nation.

Visit the Omaha metro for the Strategic Air and Space Museum too... it is world class.

I haven't been back to Nebraska for 18 years since my family left there. I only liked the western parts of Nebraska like Fort Robinson, Toadstool Park, and the unique scenes there. The east is just farmland and farmland and farmland. I don't really care to see another corn field personally.

But the East has the Major cities and better human made things.

I've experienced both cities. I lived and went to school in Omaha. I've spent a very small amount of time in Lincoln with my sister when she went to UNL and when we use to travel to Lincoln to play soccer games. We use to go to all the Dam Sites to fish and camp. I just preferred the ruggedness and natural beauty of the Old West. You appreciate more of those things if you live in South Florida.
