Since it opened in 1989, the National Automobile Museum has put the history of automotive travel on full display through exhibits, rare collections, and vehicular ephemera. The museum houses more than 200 cars in all, from the first horseless carriages to vintage and classic models to awe-inspiring oddities. Most hail from the garage of the Harrah?s Hotels and Casinos founder and legendary collector Bill Harrah, whose personal fleet reached approximately 1,400 vehicles. The automobiles are set against a backdrop of exacting street scenes, with set pieces and ambient audio recreating the world in which these artifacts roamed. This degree of detail, coupled with a lineup of permanent and rotating exhibits, has established the museum as among the class of the country's automobile museums. In fact, AutoWeek magazine placed it among its top five in the country.

A haven for wildlife that can't be released back to the wild, Animal Ark educates and inspires visitors on how to become better environmental stewards. Primarily a home to North American predators, the 38-acre sanctuary also hosts a few exotic species, including Shere Khan the tiger and Moyo and Jamar the cheetahs. Strongly rooted in the belief that wild animals deserve to live in their natural habitat, the staff fills enclosures with vegetation from their countries of origin.
