15 Perfect Weekend Getaways
Sunlight warms the animal exhibits in the Henry Doorly Zoo's Desert Dome to a toasty 80 degrees. Paths wind around sandy enclosures (left), where cacti sprout and cottontail bunnies scamper on hillsides. (Personally, we love the African Klipspringer, which look like toy-size deer.) You could easily spend an hour here (and a whole day at the zoo), but don't linger too long! You'll want to explore Omaha's Old Market district and the lovely Joslyn Art Museum.
