Our Take

Omaha's Henry Doorly Zoo is known across the country for being one of the best zoos around. Its claims to fame include the largest cat complex in North America, the "Desert Dome" habitat (the largest glazed geodesic dome in the world), and the Lied Jungle -- one of the world's largest indoor rainforests. Whether you just have an hour or you want to spend all day at the zoo, you won't be disappointed. Often ranked as the top tourist attraction in the state, it's definitely a can't miss!
