Visiting This One Place In Nebraska Is Like Experiencing A Dream
Going back in time is nothing more than a dream…right? In the literal sense, sure. We’ll never actually travel back to a prehistoric Nebraska. But at Ashfall Fossil Beds State Historical Park near Royal, you can actually see an ancient moment frozen in time.
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/
The site is currently closed for the season but will reopen on May 3, 2016.
So you still can’t travel back in time for real, but walking through the excavation site at Ashfall might be the next best thing. It’s definitely a one-of-a-kind experience that you need to have at least once in Nebraska. Have you ever visited?
