Better known as the Cornhusker State, Nebraska is a great state vacation with plenty to do for travelers of every age.
The top attraction in Nebraska is the Omaha’s Henry Doorly Zoo. It’s the top attraction in the state, as well as one of the top zoos in the country because of its many species of animals, various exhibits and the largest indoor rainforest in America.
The largest lake in Nebraska is Lake McConaughy, and it’s the perfect spot to spend a warm afternoon. It’s fun for swimming, water skiing, fishing, boating and just about anything else you can do on the water. Another water spot is the Niobrara National Scenic River. This always flowing recreation river is the place to go kayaking, and is also where many people go hiking or horseback riding through the picturesque trails.
