Crane Trust or Rowe Sanctuary; Wood River & Gibbon, Neb.

See one of wildlife’s most extraordinary shows. The largest single migration in North American takes place right on the Platte River as more than half a million sandhill cranes pass through the area on their northward migration. Trips to crane-viewing blinds are available every morning and evening during March and early April at the Crane Trust and Rowe Sanctuary.


Scotts Bluff National Monument; Gering, Neb.

Rich with geological and paleontological history as well as human history, there is much to discover while exploring the 3,000 acres of Scotts Bluff National Monument.


Chimney Rock; Bayard, Neb.

"Towering to the heavens" is how one pioneer described Chimney Rock. Today, an interpretive center overlooking the most recognized landmark along the Oregon Trail pays tribute to those pioneer travelers.


Carhenge; Alliance, Neb.

A famous quirky roadside attraction, Carhenge is a unique replica of the world-famous Stonehenge constructed of old cars.


Nebraska State Capitol; Lincoln, Neb.

Seen from miles away, the Capitol's majestic four hundred foot domed tower and low spreading base contain exterior and interior artwork representing the natural, social and political development of the state of Nebraska. Truly an architectural wonder!


Indian Cave State Park; Shubert, Neb.

Named for the large sandstone cave within the park, Indian Cave State Park encompasses 3,052 rugged acres bordering the mighty Missouri River.


Buffalo Bill Cody State Historical Park; North Platte, Neb.
