These 12 Beautiful Photos Prove That Nebraska’s Sandhills Region Is Like No Other Place On Earth

In north-central Nebraska lies one of the most incredible regions in the U.S. The Sandhills are grass-stabilized sand dunes that stretch across a large portion of the state. Once thought to be a worthless desert, the Sandhills are now an important part of Nebraska’s economy. This region also happens to be one of the most enchantingly beautiful places you’ll ever visit.

While photos can show you the striking visual appeal of the Sandhills, nothing could ever compare to visiting the area yourself. The air is crisper and cleaner out here, and the feeling of solitude is profound. The hills are unlike any other place, and you’re sure to fall in love when you visit.

One of the biggest surprises in the Sandhills is the western hemisphere’s largest hand-planted forest. Learn more about it right here.
