about Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World:
Grown men - and some women - become little kids upon entering Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, a huge sporting goods store that is truly an outdoorsman's definition of heaven.
The store can also be an adventurous family outing, with plenty to do and see, even if you've never even picked up a fishing pole.
Check out the aquarium, three-story waterfall, and arcade shooting gallery.
Shopping is also a sport here, with everything you need for almost any outdoor excursion. Fishing, hunting, camping, and water sports are all very well represented.
There is a small charge for the arcade gallery, but the other displays and exhibits are free.
