Guides to Nebraska

If you're traveling north on Hwy. 281 from Kansas into Nebraska, just a few miles over the state line you'll notice an amazing phenomenon: The terrain abruptly changes. The ground begins to swell up beneath you in a series of undulating hills, all covered with high, glossy, grass that waves a greeting as you pass by.

"This is Willa Cather Country," a historical marker proudly proclaims. The text goes on to tell the story of the American author's trek west from Virginia, and her grave disappointment upon arriving at the lonely, harsh reality of Nebraska. But anyone who's ever read My Antonia knows that Cather soon grew to love these silvery plains, and the cities that sprang up just a few miles from her rural home.

Lincoln (originally called Lancaster) is the state's capital and has a population of nearly 200,000. It's the transportation and manufacturing center of Nebraska, and once the home of another famous American, William Jennings Bryan. And Omaha, the state's other thriving metropolis, is literally booming: It's a major insurance industry hub, the site of Creighton University, and just down the road from Boys' Town, the second-chance haven for youngsters that Father Flanagan made famous. Here are some virtual attractions to get you started with your own Nebraska love affair.
