Many travelers go to Nebraska on their way to somewhere else, a trend dating back to when westbound pioneers steered their wagons up the Platte River Valley in the 1800s. However, Nebraska has many sites worth seeing, and a few stops won't go amiss.

Although Nebraska doesn't have much in the way of large cities beyond Omaha and Lincoln, it does have plenty of wide-open prairie spaces, rodeos, museums, historic sites, and small, friendly farming towns spread along the Platte River and Highway 30. Visitors interested in Old West history should make sure they take in the Buffalo Bill Ranch, Fort Robinson State Park and the Oregon Trail.

Travelers should be aware that drives between sites and towns can be long, and the pace they find will not be that of a large city.
