5. This underestimated city right in the middle of Nebraska
You may have fired Broken Bow in the past, but it’s time to take another look. The residents are completely dedicated to the continuous improvement of their community, and it shows. This city is worth a visit.
6. This deceased park almost unknown
The history of Prairie Peace Park is heartbreaking, and the decaying remains of buildings and art are even more so. You can still go by and see what’s left of the park, a trip that we highly recommend.
7. This amazing park on the Missouri River
Leave Omaha for Eppley Airfield and you will pass a sign that is easy to miss. It will direct you to Freedom Park, a unique place right next to the river where retired naval ships and other military objects rest. It is a very unexpected place to find in triple-shore Nebraska.
