What are some beautiful drives in Nebraska?  

Nebraska is a very scenic state – ignore anyone who says otherwise! As long as you know where to look, you’re sure to find breathtaking drives all over the state, no matter where you’re beginning your journey from. Some of our favorite beautiful drives in Nebraska include gems like the 385 Gold Rush Scenic Byway, which runs from the Colorado state line to Chadron, and the Heritage Highway, a 238-mile stretch of gorgeous road from Brownville to Edison. Read on for even more!  

 

Which scenic Nebraska byways should I add to my bucket list?  

Believe it or not, Nebraska is home to nine scenic byways, all of which are truly worth the time it takes to drive them. Some of our very favorites (although it’s extremely difficult to narrow it down to just a couple) include the incredible Bridges to Buttes Byway, an epic 197-mile stretch of scenic road in northwestern Nebraska, the Loup Rivers Scenic Byway, a 150-mile scenic route covering Highways 91 and 11 in central Nebraska, and the Outlaw Trail Scenic Byway, which will blow your mind with its absolutely incredible scenery (including one of the most epic waterfalls in the entire Cornhusker State). There’s also the Sandhills Journey Scenic Byway, which consists of 272 miles of interesting sights and scenes. For more details about all these scenic Nebraska byways and then some, take a look at this article.  

 

Where is Scenic Highway 92 in Nebraska?  

Scenic Highway 92, also known as HWY NE 26/US 92, also known as the Western Trails Scenic Byway, is a truly breathtaking scenic drive stretching from Ogallala to the Wyoming state border. It’s a bit shorter than many of Nebraska’s scenic drives, at just 144 miles in length, but it’s jam-packed with things to see and do. You’ll want take at least an entire day to drive it so you can enjoy all the stops along the way; better still, it’s pretty easy to create an entire weekend adventure around this drive, and who doesn’t love weekend-long vacations?
