North Platte

With parks, amusement centers, a children's museum and loads of cowboy culture, North Platte is just right for families and anyone in search of the Old West.   

You’ll find rich history in the place "Buffalo Bill" Cody called home. Visit his ranch—maybe ride horseback on the grounds—at Buffalo Bill Ranch State Historical Park and State Recreation Area (Dusty Trails outfits the rides). Spot other Cody memorials around town and in summer, celebrate his story at the long-running NEBRASKAland Days festival. Several parks and amusement centers add to the fun with go-karts, laser tag and an antique carousel, while some visitors may find it thrilling enough to view the world's largest railroad classification yard at the Golden Spike Tower and Visitor Center
