Cheap flights to Nebraska

Many dismiss Nebraska as a long range of plains that stretch to forever. Others deplore its lack of stellar attractions, but then one must look beyond what Nebraska lacks when compared to other states. Its land, which lies in both the Great Plains and the Midwestern United States, features out-of-the-box attractions that make it a unique and enjoyable place to be. 

 

The plains might stretch for miles in Nebraska, but they can be amazing to behold in different times of the day and night when the clouds and sky form enchanting backdrops. The parks and gardens here are also considerable, making a trip going here a memorable one for those who prefer the outdoors. Mixed with cultural sights, these can make a pleasant getaway for those who want to see out-of-the-way destinations in the United States.

 

What to see & do

Tourists going out to see nature will find various attractions in the Cornhusker State. It has a wide range of the great outdoors such as in the Smith Falls State Park, the newest one in the territory. Those going here can access a national historic bridge across the Niobrara River to access Nebraska's highest waterfall. One can also see here a diverse range of unique ecological systems in the country. After finishing the sightseeing here, tourists can head to Chadron State Park, where one can check out the trail rides and then set up lodgings at the campgrounds. Hunting is also done here in specific times of the year when the big game firearm and wild turkey seasons are on. 

 

Tracing the past can also be possible in Chimney Rock National Historic Site, where tourists will see the Rock seeming to touch the heavens wit its height. This famous landmark along the Oregon Trail commemorates the efforts of the pioneers to travel across the prairie and arrive in the place where they will remake their lives. From here, tourists can then head to the Agate Fossil Beds National Monument, a recognised archaeological site of international renown. One can honour here various personalities such as Red Loud and American Horse of the Oglala band and many others such as James Cook and other pioneers.
