  • Omaha

    Located on the Missouri River in eastern Nebraska, Omaha is the most important city in Nebraska. Omaha is a corruption of the Omaha Indian word, umanhan, which means "dwellers on the bluff." Omaha was founded in 1854 by William Brown, the operator of the Lone Tree Ferry at a strategic crossing of the Missouri River. William Brown had a vision for a...

  • It gets Hot out there

    Traveling in Nebraska is an adventure in extreme comparisions. While the vistas can be grand, the variation is in the close and near. When it comes to temperatures, the average is something like 80 F (27 c). The daytime summers are often over 100 F (38 c). Fond in a negative sense. We were in Gering and the bank thermomiter said 103 F (39 c). We...

  • Nebraska Landscape

    Well, may not be much to look at, but you do have to admit, there's a lot more here to see than there is of Kansas!


    Nebraska was a leader in creating clean and comfortable rest stops for the traveller. Other states have since caught up, at least some of them have, but Nebraska's I-80 rest stops are still a good place to take a break from the road. Many of these stops feature a sculpture commissioned especially for that particular stop.

    Being from Columbus, OH I grew up in a clean, safe, prosperous city.....I thought Columbus 2 million people,Omaha 500,000 people cant be that bad.I thought when I first came to Omaha, NE I was going to throw up from the filth and stink of the downtown slaughterhouses, people in Omaha dont even know they live in a city of filth (10 times worse than...

  • wanderlust23's General Tip

    Hanging out at my friends grandparents house. It was at a farm out in the middle of the black hills. We just relaxed and sat around all day listening to the crickets.

    The capital building is really a must. This has such history, it is great to go and learn about the capital, and about the state! The things that I miss the most.. all of my mom´s home made desserts! That is another thing, families in Nebraska are great cooks! There is some great foods that we make in Nebraska! I also miss the tranquility that our...

  • Lots of space

    Nebraska has several population centers and lots of open spaces. Interstate 80 run the length of Nebraska from Omaha to Denver/Chenyene(Hiway Splits). Between the western border and Lincoln, You can drive for Hours and see lots of cattle feedlots and open prairie and farm ground.

  • Go to Mormon Island State...

    Go to Mormon Island State Recreation area. They have a nice campground, although the humidity and bugs were aweful after coming out of the rockies. However, it was neat to see the wild cannabis growing all around the campground (known locally as ditch-weed).

    The Platte River Scenic Trails is a historic byway comprises the old Lincoln Highway, the first transcontinental highway and forefather of the modern interstate system. Highway 30, or the Lincoln Highway, was completed over 90 years ago. Stretching from New York to San Francisco, this engineering feat was named in memory of President Lincoln.The...

  • There are two cities of note...

    There are two cities of note in Nebraska, Omaha and Lincoln, the latter being far more interesting to the traveller. It is the home of the university of Nebraska at Lincoln. I consider it a great honour to be the visiting Endocrinologist to the two tribes of Indians who live in the Northeastern corner of Nebraska: the UmonHon and the Ho Chunk.I...

    If at all possible try to visit Kearney in mid February to mid April during the sandhill crane migration. Half a million cranes will converge there because of the wide shallow river. Cranes are every place you look. In the sky all morning cranes will be flying in beautiful formations. In every field along side of the road there will be feeding and...

    Visit western Nebraska!! It's full of history (the whole state is, but the Panhandle offers 'specific' history of fur trading and the Oregon and Mormon trails). Scotts Bluff National Monument(Scottsbluff/Gering), Chimney Rock(Bayard), Agate Fossil Beds(Crawford?), Fort Robinson(Crawford or Chadron), etc, are all great places!
