1. Venture to Fort Robinson State Park

One of Nebraska’s most popular state parks, Fort Robinson State Park captures the essence of western life with chuckwagon dinners, trail rides, stagecoach rides and so much more.

4. See a Husker game

Memorial Stadium in Lincoln turns into the state’s third largest city on Husker football game days.  Attending a game is quite the experience, especially for young football fans. Football isn’t the only must-watch University of Nebraska-Lincoln sport. The women’s volleyball team are consistently ranked among the best in the nation. Games are exciting to watch! Whichever team you go to watch, be sure to wear red.

5. Explore Exit 426

If you’re traveling across Nebraska, chances are good that you’re traveling Interstate 80. Plan a stop at Exit 426 because there is quite a few things to do just off the interstate. You can see animals native to North America, including bison and wolves, at Lee G. Simmons Conservation Park & Wildlife Safari.

Nearby, you’ll find Strategic Air & Space Museum, where you’ll see aircraft and spacecraft and artifacts related to both. Round out the stop with a visit to Mahoney State Park. Mahoney is a hugely popular park, with trail rides, paddle boats, and the state’s first zipline course. If visiting the park in the summer, be sure to plan to spend part of your day at the park’s huge aquatics center. It has water slides, a wave pool, and a kid’s sprayground.
