Cornhusker State

From the people to the destinations to the events, this special place is home to the good life. A place that’s simple and humble and pure. Nebraska has wonders in every direction: vast prairies in the east, majestic cliffs and peaks in the west and sand dunes in between, making for a trip as scenic as it is fun. The state is also rich in history, with many opportunities to explore its heritage. (discoveramerica.com)
