The Magical Place In Nebraska Where It’s Christmas Year-Round

Summer in Nebraska means crazy hot temperatures, humid air so heavy you practically need oars to move through it, and fond thoughts of winter. While we can’t make winter come any faster, we can pretend that it’s Christmas even on the hottest day of the year at this delightful store in Atkinson.

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:

Are you ready to escape from the heat and go shopping for some Christmas cheer? You’ll find Something Special by Marilyn at 204 S. Main, Atkinson, NE 68713. Stop in 9 am – 5 pm Monday through Friday or 9 am – 4 pm on Saturday. If you’re with a large group, you can even contact the store to arrange a bus tour.
