This Underwater Tunnel In Nebraska Will Enchant You In The Best Way Possible
It’s pretty common knowledge that the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium is the best zoo in the world, but there are still too many Nebraskans who haven’t yet visited. In case you needed yet another reason to make the trip, take a look at one of the aquarium’s most amazing features: the 70-foot-long shark tunnel.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
As an added bonus, the climate-controlled building is the perfect place to cool down in the summer or stay warm in the winter. It can get quite crowded on busy days, but if you can manage to go on a weekday (especially in the morning) you’ll be likely to have the whole tunnel to yourself.
Admission to the aquarium is included in the cost of zoo admission. Find out more about the zoo, including hours and admission prices, here – and learn more about the aquarium itself here.
All the way on the other side of the state is another kind of zoo that’s also well worth a visit whenever you’re in the area. Read more about it here.
