Nebraska Is Home To Agate Fossil Beds National Monument, An Underrated Ancient Wonder
One of Nebraska’s most fascinating but underrated attractions is located in western Nebraska down a long stretch of rural roads. The drive is calming and quite lovely, and when you get to your destination you’ll be glad you took the time to visit.
Ed. note: as of the time of publication (June 2020), the visitor center is closed due to Covid-19 restrictions. See the National Park Service link below to keep up on closures and other news.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
