The Small Town Drugstore In Nebraska That’s One Of The Last Of Its Kind
The local drugstore used to be the center of the town. They tended to be more than just pharmacies; they sold limited general merchandise, and the really good ones had soda fountains. The fun fountains served up shakes and malts, phosphates, ice cream sundaes, and all kinds of other treats that were beloved by kids and adults alike.
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! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

The traditional drugstore with the soda fountain inside is increasingly a rarity these days. There are only a few smattered throughout the state. This one in Arapahoe is well-loved by residents and visitors alike.
