I think we can all agree that Nebraskans are pretty amazing folks – the best people you’ll ever meet. Not only do we win the prize for our friendly personalities, but we really shine at many things that others can’t We hate to brag, but we’re the best at these 13 things, hands down.
1. Feeding the country.
People all over the country owe a big thank you to the hard work of Nebraska farmers. We produce beef, corn, soybeans and wheat that helps feed the nation.
2. Working hard.
Nebraskans have the best worth ethic, and we aren't afraid to roll up our sleeves and get our hands dirty.
3. Celebrating St. Patrick's Day.
Sure, other cities across the country celebrate St. Patrick's Day. But how many can say that their population doubles on this day? The little town of O'Neill is home to around 4,000 people, but when it's time to honor the patron saint of Ireland, 8,000 folks show up to party.
4. Nebraskans are the best at being friendly.
We're the nicest folks on the planet, hands down. We always have a smile for everyone we meet, and we'll chat you up in the grocery store line even though we've never met you.
5. Supporting our team.
We love football, and we love our Huskers. We love them so much that we fill Memorial Stadium to capacity on game days. 90,000 fans all in one place makes for a pretty loud, pretty proud crowd.
Nebraska is one of the best stargazing places in the world. Our unpolluted air and dark skies draw people from all over the place to witness the beauty of the universe.
7. Planting trees.
The first Arbor Day in the U.S. happened right here in Nebraska, when over 1 million trees were planted on April 10, 1872. We've celebrated the holiday in style every year since.
8. Providing excellent customer service.
Because we're such friendly folks, we make great customer service agents. Nebraska has tons of call centers, including PayPal, Marriott, Aflac and more. Whether you need help with your hotel reservation or are questioning a charge on your account, you'll likely speak to a Nebraskan when you pick up the phone.
9. Producing incredible steaks.
Our corn-fed cows provide the world with the best steaks on the planet. Omaha Steaks ships 'em to people all over the world, and we can get a quality steak at any butcher shop or grocery store in the state.
10. Creative expression.
Where else in the world can you see an outdoor art installation like Carhenge? Stonehenge is impressive, but Carhenge is creative innovation!
11. Growing the tastiest corn in the world.
Nebraska is the third-largest corn producer in the country, but we grow the most delicious corn you'll ever find. Slather an ear or two with butter and dig in - you won't taste corn this good anywhere else.
12. Helping our neighbors.
Nebraskans are the best neighbors you'll ever have. We're all about community here, and the minute you need a helping hand, we're ready to assist.
13. Enjoying the natural beauty of the Cornhusker State.
We don't care where you've traveled, Nebraska is always home. We love to bask in the natural beauty of our state - why sit home when we can enjoy views like this?
