If you like things big, go to Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo. It boasts North America’s largest cat complex, as well as the world’s biggest indoor desert, rain forest, swamp and nocturnal exhibits. Want to stroll the ocean floor? This is the place. A 70-foot acrylic tunnel at the bottom of an 850,000-gallon reef tank lets visitors gaze at tropical fish, rays and sharks — safely out of tooth range.
