Attractions in Nebraska

Although the Cornhusker State isn’t primarily known as a vacation destination, it has a surprising number of attractions that are fun to check out if you’re catching a flight to Nebraska for some other reason. The Henry Doorly Zoo and Aquarium in Omaha, which hosts the world’s largest indoor desert and indoor jungle, has interactive exhibits and an IMAX 3D movie theater. Omaha’s Old Market District has been repurposed into a delightfully modern retail center where you’ll find quaint shops, bars, cafes, and restaurants. Spirit of Nebraska’s Wilderness and Pioneer Courage Park is an outdoor art installation spread out over five city blocks that features bronze and stainless-steel statues of a wagon train and pioneers.

Indian Cave State Park on the banks of the Missouri River is a site where Native Americans lived for centuries before Europeans colonized the New World. The cave itself contains petroglyphs and carvings that date back several thousand years, and the adjacent 3,000-acre park is used for horseback riding, hiking, and other outdoor activities in the summer and skiing in the winter. Another imposing natural site is Scotts Bluff National Monument, which is a series of steep hills and rock formations that pioneers in the mid-19th century used as a landmark to help guide them westward.

Nebraska’s most unusual attraction may be Carhenge near Alliance, which is a replication of Stonehenge constructed from vintage American automobiles that have been spray-painted gray.

Travel Tips for Nebraska

Cheap flights to Nebraska will get you to the Cornhusker State, but once you’re there, you’ll probably have to rent a car if you want to explore. Nebraska is very large and sparsely populated, so public transportation options are limited. Travelers taking flights to Nebraska should be aware that telling time in Nebraska can sometimes be confusing because the state is divided into two time zones. The eastern part of the state including the largest city, Omaha, are in the Central Time Zone, while everything west of Lincoln, the state capital, is in the Mountain Time Zone.
