Nebraska City Things to Do

    You might not think that the streets of Nebraska City are much to sneeze at. After all, the town only has 7,700 residents, and there's not a whole lot happening downtown. The real action in the area is an hour north in Omaha. But truth be told, as one of the oldest cities in Nebraska, Nebraska City is endowed with many architectural gems. Apparently, the city is working to focus its energies on showing off its jewels, so come now before the crowds arrive.

    The Leid Conference Center has a fine restaurant. It is also a very interesting and unique place. There is a wood burning furnace that runs very clean and efficiently. The grounds around the center have been planted in a variety of fruit and nut bearing orchards. That is a hazelnut field in the photo. Much of the construction for the center is done using wood rather than steel. The center is a model for conservation and beauty.

    People look at you kinda funny when at 7 AM, you emerge from a minivan with Missouri plates, snap a couple of pictures, nod and smile and say a few pithy remarks in a Southern accent, then jump back into the minivan and drive off. And the little old woman at the McDonald's seemed confused at two guys in a minivan too. I could have explained that Alejandro and I, in reaching Kansas City late two nights earlier, found no cars left at Thrifty Rent-a-Car; thus we were stuck with the minivan. I could further have explained that we had waken at 4:30 AM that morning, after watching the USA National Soccer Team beat Costa Rica 1-0 the night before, in order to see Nebraska, then turn around and drive back to Kansas City to catch our flight back to DC. I could have explained all that, but I don't think she would have believed me. I don't blame her.

    There are some good hiking trails to watch for birds at between the Arbor Day Farm and the Leid Conference Center. It is a beautiful area with all the orchards, farms, and woods.
