Nebraska’s Very First State Park Is Still One Of The Best And Here’s Why You Need To Visit

Nebraskans are, by and large, serious outdoors people. We’d rather be playing outside than doing just about anything else, so it makes sense that our state parks are such beloved places. Our very first state park was established in 1921 and has been a favorite destination ever since.

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:
