There’s A Little Slice Of Paradise Hiding Right Here In Nebraska… And You’ll Want To Visit
There are tons of little hidden treasures all around Nebraska – you know, those places you go on weekend family getaways that stay in your mind forever. Today, Johnson Lake State Recreation Area near Lexington has our attention. It’s easily accessible from communities in the area of Cozad, Elwood, Gothenburg, Holdrege, and Kearney. This relatively small recreation area packs a huge wallop when it comes to things to keep you and your family happily occupied. And the icing on the cake is that it also happens to be one of the loveliest places in the state.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
Three other state recreation areas – Gallagher Canyon, Elwood Reservoir, and Plum Creek Canyon – are nearby, and the four lakes together add up to an impressive 4,000 acres of water. In the local area you can find antique shops, an 18-hole golf course, museums, restaurants, and lodging – everything you need to make a whole family vacation of visiting the area.
