This Drone Footage Shows You Just How Amazing Nebraska Looks In The Wintertime

Nebraska’s beauty is undeniable, and it doesn’t take any time off in the winter. We dare say that our fair state is even lovelier when it’s covered in a blanket of snow. This drone footage shows the snowy city of Plainview. Spoiler alert: Plainview does not live up to its name – it’s positively enchanting in the winter.

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:

This video was taken in the aftermath of Blizzard Kayla in early 2017. The storm was significant, as you can see by some of the massive snow drifts. Look closely and you’ll see trucks plowing the streets.

This drone footage is from 2015, just after the first snow of the season. It’s much less of a dramatic scene than the first video, but the light dusting of snow gives the town a charming quality, like it’s a scene from a snow globe.

Isn’t this city picturesque in the snow? If you have some great wintry photos of Nebraska, we’d love to see them on our Facebook page!
