    Take in the scenic wonders...

    This is Nebraska's Second Largest City

    Favorite thing: ...by strolling around the area just south of the State Capitol on a warm summer's evening. There are lovely old homes and lots of big trees where you can hear the locusts sing. Breathe deeply and inhale the smell of grass that's freshly cut. It's very relaxing and retro (in good kind of way).

    However, if it's breathtaking vistas you crave, you may wish to look elsewhere...

    Fondest memory: My Aunt Agnes (but she moved to Vegas in 90, and died in 1998). The place just isn't the same without her. She was the best! :o)

    Favorite thing: Enjoy a lazy day in the middle of summer. The weather can produce some great storms, magnificent if they're not twisters, and you can sit back and let the rain come. Check out the picture of the capitol building. I wont write what the locals call it, too risque for VT.

    Favorite thing: Visit the State Capitol Building. It is a remarkable building. There are tours available throughout the day. YOu can even take a (tiny)elevator to the top of the dome.
