Step Inside This Quaint Nebraska Town With Only One Traffic Light

Close enough to Lincoln and Omaha to be a bedroom community, yet far enough away to feel like a rural small town, is Wahoo. This little Saunders County town is home to just over 4,500 people and has a lot more to offer than its size may imply.

They won the comic over, and this little one-traffic-light town gained national attention. That excitement has since died down, and today you’ll find a peaceful, lovely little town where kids still play in the streets and neighbors still know one another’s names.

There are hundreds of other towns in Nebraska where life is so slow that they don’t need more than one traffic light. Which one is your favorite? Tell us about it in the comments.
