Plan A Trip To McCook, One Of Nebraska’s Best Small Towns
In southwestern Nebraska, just about an hour south of North Platte, sits the charming town of McCook. With a population of less than 8,000 (as of the 2010 census), it’s got a delightful small-town feeling but is close enough to a large city that folks there have easy access to everything they need. Whether you’re into art, history, food, cultural events, or outdoor activities, McCook has plenty to offer residents and visitors alike.
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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
And, of course, one of the best reasons to visit McCook is the people. They’ve got the small-town friendliness that Nebraska is so famous for. Once you visit, you may find you never want to leave. Find out more about this charming town on its official website here.
