Great road trips are meant to be shared. And whether you’re looking for an exciting family vacation or a relaxing getaway with that special someone, Nebraska is the perfect destination.
The great outdoors
Nebraska’s state parks and recreation areas provide a bounty of outdoor adventure, including hiking, biking and camping. If you’d rather be on the water, canoe or tube one of the state’s picturesque rivers; the Niobrara National Scenic River is a great place to start. Or try tanking. That’s right, pile the family in a stock tank and take a leisurely float downstream.
Named the best zoo in America by TripAdvisor, Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium features over 130 acres of exhibits and gardens. Farther west at I-80 Exit 426, take to the skies in a big way at the Strategic Air & Space Museum.
If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind experience, you’ll certainly find it at the Great Platte River Road Archway. Spanning I-80 near Kearney, this award-winning museum tells the story of westward expansion through stunning audiovisual effects and three-dimensional displays. Speaking of unique stops, be sure to check out Carhenge near Alliance. The to-scale replica of England’s Stonehenge is made entirely of vintage cars.
Wrap up each day with a good night’s sleep at an elegant hotel, a quaint bed and breakfast or perhaps even a guest ranch.
