    Scotts Bluff National Monument is a great visit for an hour or several hours. The Visitor Center is the place to start your journey. Learn about the area and the historic trails. Then drive to the top of the south bluff. While the view from the north overlook (nice walk through the open woods) includes distant vistas of the High Plains, the south overlook provide you a view of the extensive breaks and bluffs that make of Scott's Bluff and the obstacle that it was to the pioneers.

    Visit Gering in mid-July to enjoy the 'Oregon Trail Days'. It is rated as one of the top 100 events in North America, and it is also the oldest celebration of its type in Nebraska. There is the big parade and almost everyone in the area attends. There are little pancake feeds, a kiddie parade and various other competitions and exhibitions. It lasts for a few days, and it is very festive from beginning to end. The whole community participates. It is very exciting.

    Take a drive the 30 miles (48 k) north on Nebraska 29 to Agate Fossil Beds. Here, you'll find a unique story of the early age of Mammals. For lots of things to do see my Agate page. Yes, there is enough to do to keep you busy all day. No place nearby to stay. Make it a day trip, but give yourself a day. Include either early morning (tough with the drive up) or stay until near sunset. It's worth the time. Of course, it's nicer if the temperature is down below 80 F (27 c).

    Favorite thing: There is the Farm and Ranch Museum, which covers the farming and ranching history of the area around the turn of the century and also the Migration(Oregon Trail).
    farmandranchmuseum.com
    It is on the intersection of highways 92 and 71.
