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.

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!

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.
