The Small Town In Nebraska You’ve Never Heard Of But Will Fall In Love With

Every little town in Nebraska has its own personality, which you can feel as soon as you cross the town line. Callaway, in Custer County, has a population of just 539 but a personality big enough for a town many times its size. If you don’t know it yet, you’ll want to soon.

Callaway is also the perfect home base for day trips to other great locations in the area. It’s close to Victoria Springs State Recreation Area, and Oconto, home to a whimsical sculpture garden (#3 on this list). It’s also just a short jump away from the Sandhills Journey Scenic Byway (#8 on this list)…and, of course, it’s right in the heart of the Sandhills, home to some of the most breathtaking scenery in Nebraska.
