Nebraska is full of hundreds of small towns, each with their own unique charms. If you find yourself out wandering around in southeastern Nebraska this summer, consider stopping in to visit the lovely town of Fairbury. There’s more to this town of less than 4,000 than you might expect.

Some of the other activities and attractions you’ll want to hit up in Fairbury are the Rock Creek Station State Historical Park, Fairbury City Park (with another fairy tale-like structure!), and the District 10 Schoolhouse museum. Don’t miss the July 4th flea market, which happens to be the largest flea market in Nebraska. There’s a parade that morning and fireworks at night – if there’s ever a perfect time for a day trip to Fairbury, the July 4th holiday is it.
