Wagon trails are etched across the prairies of Nebraska, worn deep by pioneers headed west along the Oregon and Mormon trails. The Stuhr Museum of the Prairie Pioneer in Grand Island and the Great Platte River Road Archway near Kearney tell the story. Currently the state's most famous trek belongs to the sandhill crane. Nearly a half million gather in the channels of the Platte River each spring, drawing birders from around the world. Nebraska campgrounds are ideal for a summer family vacation, with country fairs and bike trails never far from your tent or RV.
