Here Is The Most Remote, Isolated Spot In Nebraska And It’s Positively Breathtaking

It’s no secret that Nebraska is home to some truly incredible sights. But one feature dominates the state, covering more than one-quarter of Nebraska and disproving the notion that the entire state is flat. The Sandhills stretch across north-central Nebraska, dotted here and there by towns, ranches, lakes, and recreation areas…but for the most part, this is the most isolated part of 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

In fact, the area is so remote and so dark at night that there is an annual stargazing party in the Sandhills. It’s both an event to view the incredible night sky (which, out here, is stunning even without a telescope) and a celebration of the Sandhills as the perfect place to get away from the rest of civilization.

It may seem odd to characterize such a large portion of the state as remote and isolated, but take a trip through the Sandhills and you’ll see what we mean. Other than the occasional town or ranch, being out here truly feels like being all alone in the wilderness…and it’s an altogether magical feeling.
