Travel to Nebraska / Nebraska Vacation Rentals

Lush landscapes, fertile grounds, plenty of recreation, and the Lewis and Clark Trail can all make Nebraska come to mind. You’ll really feel down home in a friendly Nebraska vacation rental.

Nebraska Agri-Tourism

Nebraska is a premier agricultural state and region of the world. Try wine sampling at various vineyards around the state. You might feel like Linus Van Pelt in one of the pumpkin patches. Find some interesting antique farming equipment at the L.F. Larsen Tractor Museum. If you’re curious about exotic animals, stop at the Fillingham Exotic Animal Farm. Peer at the structural oddity of a barn built using wooden pegs in place of nails in North Bend. See the buffalo roam at Hutchinson Buffalo Ranch. You’ll be busy in the fields for weeks touring the wonders of Nebraska’s agriculture.

Vacation Spots in Nebraska

Western Nebraska, the Panhandle region, features the Scottsbluff area. Scotts Bluff National Monument is a bluff landmark with Mitchell Pass and 3,000 acres of prairie and the associated museum’s theme is the history of the area, both human and land. Lake Minatare State Recreation area offers a wealth of fun outdoors in a plush, verdant North Platte Valley. The Scottsbluff area has facilities for golf, hiking, biking, hunting, and fishing. A number of antique shops also dot the region.

The Sandhills region’s landscape in North Central Nebraska consists of river canyons, waterfalls, and the largest manmade forest in North America placed into miles and miles of grass blades. You’ll find the history of this region told by the Sandhills museum in Valentine, with plenty of agriculture-life implements and a two-headed, five-legged calf. In Scotia, the Happy Jack Peak & Chalk Mine sports the only chalk room and pillar mine open publicly on the continent. Try a float trip down the Cedar River in a plastic tank, complete with picnic table!

A bit of a curiosity exists in the Southwest Central Nebraska region called Prairie Lakes; its nickname is the “Great American Desert,” but there are a number of lakes and large reservoirs here, like at the Lake McConaughy State Recreation Area. What naturally follows is that water sports are a great pastime, such as sailboarding and water skiing, and also fishing and hunting are popular. The Prairie Lakes region was also home to “Buffalo Bill” Cody, remembered in a historical park and recreation area.

With wide-open spaces, Southeast Central Frontier Trails is aptly named for the pioneers who sought out new lands. Grand Island remains with the reputation for high quality birdwatching. The Stuhr Museum & Railroad Town has an interpretive bent while simulating a Union Pacific-style town with original shops, barns, and houses. Frontier Trails is also a region that supports hunting and camping. Our Lady of Fatima Shrine in Arapahoe, conceived and built by a former WWII prisoner, shows beautiful landscape around the statues.

But that's hardly all the vacation spots in Nebraska you can explore; there's a lot more...

The Lewis and Clark region, in Northeast Nebraska, celebrates the rich history of the infamous expedition. The Lewis and Clark Lake State Recreation Area in Crofton is ripe for camping and boating. The Missouri River runs through this region, and part of the Missouri National Recreational River is where bald eagles make their home. For a bit of character, visit the over two thousand clown dolls in all shapes at the Klown Doll Museum in Plainview. You won’t run out of things to explore in this region.

Metro Nebraska has the opposite feel from the rest of the state, disregarding the friendly Midwesterners. Omaha has gained respect as having extremely progressive cuisine, as well as tasty microbrewing and the signature Omaha beef. Take note of the urban landscaping created by artists and architects. Lincoln has a good mix of culture, home to both the American Historical Society of Germans from Russia Museum, and the Lentz Center for Asian Culture. Both areas possess great shopping and entertainment as well.

Pioneer Country looks back to the first pioneer settlers of Nebraska, and goes forward in the Southeast section. The limestone melting Smith Lime Kiln, northwest of Fairbury, has been standing since the early 1870s. Historic Steele City has demonstrations and buildings to see such as a blacksmith shop and a livery barn. The Big Indian NRD Recreation Area has 250 acres set aside for boating, fishing, swimming, camping, and picnicking. Tour the apple orchards in Nebraska City, and take in some outlet shopping.
