THE JAMES ARTHUR VINEYARDS AND WINERY is located near Raymond, Nebraska, which is just a short drive from Lincoln.
Get on highway 34 going northwest out of Lincoln until you come to highway 79. Go north on 79 just a few miles and watch for the sign in my second photo (or a similar sign; they do change it now and then). Then turn east to the winery.
We recommend their "Heartland White" wine, but several wines they have are excellent.
We recently stopped by on a Saturday evening and they had a live band playing, a Corvette Club was in attendance, and a good time was had by all.
You cannot predict what will be on... Keep an open mind and if you don't like it come back in a couple hours. Volunteers program everything from bizarro to the Blues, and ballroom dance music to the most out there alternative you can think of. Crooners, polka, ethnic shows of all kinds... it is worldly, wild and worthwhile. Have a listen!, then call the station and say thanks! It is the best of Lincoln's soul, and when you get lonesome for it you can live stream it on the web.
THEY HAVE A LAKE AND A BEACH. LOTS OF WATER ACTIVITIES.
They also have Nebraska's tallest lighthouse. (The other one is in the town of Kearney. Since they were erected, neither Kearney nor the Linoma area have ever experienced a shipwreck.)
Its on highway 6, halfway between Omaha and Lincoln, hence the name "Linoma".
Aside from Starkweather's grave, I imagine a number of people don't bother to drive past the State Pen. It's in the south part of town, surrounded by new developments and oddly enough, the State Patrol Headquarters. There's a big brick wall with razor wire at the top, with the words 'Nebraska State Penitentiary' in big letters on it. Makes for a great photo op.
