Nebraska Hotels, Attractions and More

Sure, Nebraska has prairies, but don't let images of land stretching to meet the horizon limit your vision of what else this state has to offer. For the traveler who appreciates the quirky, there are such sites as Carhenge, a Nebraska variation on the famed Stonehenge, and for visitors who prefer the historical mixed in with their vacation time, markers noting the Trail of Tears and other Native American landmarks can be found throughout the state.

Historic Park

Look closely at this image, and you'll see ribcages of animals from twelve million years ago. After a volcanic eruption, ash blanketed the region. Eating the ash killed the animals, but preserved such specimens as the giraffe-like camel and the giant tortoise.
