The World’s Largest Indoor Desert Is Right Here In Nebraska And You’ll Want To Visit
Although some early explorers thought of Nebraska as a vast American desert, it’s been a long time since the term has been associated with the Cornhusker State. There is one small corner of Nebraska in which there is a thriving desert, however, and it happens to be the largest indoor desert in the world.
