The Best Sight In The World Is Actually A Road Sign That Says Welcome To Nebraska
Ask native Nebraskans what phrase they associate with our state and you’re bound to hear “The Good Life.” These three little words were our state’s slogan at one time; since then, our tourism board has proclaimed that we’re “Nebraska Nice” and cheekily claimed that “Honestly, it’s not for everyone.” Still, the welcome to Nebraska sign bears those familiar old words, and we think they’re the most accurate way to welcome people to the Cornhusker State.
How do you feel when you see that “Nebraska … the good life” sign? Does it bring a sense of warm familiarity? Are you as fond of our former state slogan as we are? Tell your stories in the comments!
