Chances are, the Homestead National Monument of America brought you here. Good call. Just don't leave without blazing a trail through downtown or Beatrice's great outdoors.
After hitting Homestead National Historical Park, discover more pioneer history at the Carnegie Building. Then steer your wagon downtown, where you can get a taste of local cuisine, plus Nebraska wine and craft brews. Amp up your adventure with a half- or full-day at Chief Standing Bear Trail or Rockford Lake State Recreation Area.
