Nebraska travelers choose from 10 Best Western hotels.
The Good Life – certainly true during a Nebraska summer. Check out outdoor Nebraska for summer fun like water fountains at Yanney Heritage Park in Kearney, or mountain biking, horseback riding, and hiking in Chadron State Park.
Head to Omaha, the Cornhusker State's largest city, for baseball and horseshoes at Dodge Park. Omaha's air-conditioned entertainment like the Omaha Children's Museum, the historic Durham Museum, and performing arts at Orpheum Theater. Similar attractions are found in the Capital City of Lincoln, including the Lincoln Children's Museum, the Nebraska History Museum, and of course, the Nebraska State Capitol.
Summer in the midwest can mean many things, and a road trip should be high on the list. Explore Nebraska behind the wheel and check out the Western Territory Landmarks Tour, and swing through the Nebraska Pioneer Crossing Tour. While you're out and about, plan some stops at any of the Nebraska national parks – Agate Fossil Beds NM, Homestead National Monument of America, or Scotts Bluff NM.
And for a little Nebraska heritage, try an old-fashioned summer road trip. Check out the Front Street & Cowboy Museum in Ogallala, and the Museum of the Fur Trade in Chadron – both in summery western Nebraska.
