Nebraska

  • Overview

  • Map

  • Nebraska

    Nebraska, rising from the Missouri prairie lands to the Great Plains and foothills of the Rocky Mountains, still echoes from the footsteps of explorers, pioneers and plains Indians. In Nebraska, agriculture is the way of life.

    The level land of the east is ideal for farming, while the western area of high dunes and small, shallow lakes is dotted with ranches.

    Set on the west bank of the Missouri River, Omaha is the state’s largest city and is one of the state’s main tourist attractions. It boasts a world-renowned zoo, a buzzing arts and entertainment district and has a ‘big city’ atmosphere. Lincoln, the state’s capital, is one of the Midwest's most beloved cities and offers a wealth of attractions to its visitor. Home to fine culinary and artistic treasures; a budding live music scene; breathtaking parks, golf courses and trails; and a friendly Midwestern attitude, Lincoln offers the exhilaration of a big city and the serenity of the countryside all in one place.

    The true gems of Nebraska, however, lie in its natural beauty. Early each spring, the Platte River in south-central Nebraska provides a stopover for the massive migration of the sandhill cranes, the largest gathering of this kind in the world. Watching the ritual dancing of the cranes as the sun sets over the water is a breathtaking sight.

    Should you not have a full 23 days available to do the full length of Route 66, then we can offer shorter duration trips for you to enjoy 'the mother road'. Please see details below:

    Elko

    Your adventure starts this morning, as you head west; skimming the south shores of Great Salt Lake and crossing Great Salt Lake Desert. Leaving Utah behind you cross the state line into Nevada. We suggest lunch in Wendover and a stop in Wells before arriving in Elko where you spend the next two nights. Elko sits in the heart of Cowboy Country. Here you can visit the California Trails Center; which presents the history of the Gold Rush, Western Migration, Pioneers and the Donner Party. Next visit historic downtown Elko and take time to see the amazing saddles and leather creations at Capriola’s Saddle Shop. Experience the sights and sounds of the Western Folklife Center and learn more of cowboy poetry and song. Just outside Elko, you can head to Lamoille Canyon and take a leisurely drive along the breathtaking twelve-mile canyon road - viewing spectacular vistas, wildlife, flowers, and rushing streams, through the glacially carved canyons of the Ruby Mountains.

    Reno

    It is a fairly long drive today, but wonderfully scenic as you cross Cowboy Country - an area renowned for strapping on your hat and pulling on your boots and where nobody stands on ceremony. If you want to stretch your legs make a stop at Rye Patch State Recreation Area for a picnic beneath tall cottonwoods. If you’re feeling romantic, lock your love in Lovelock by fastening a lock on the never-ending chain at Lovers Lock Plaza, or simply admire the more than 1,000 locks that adorn the plaza. Reno, also known as ‘The Biggest Little City in the World’, was the original sin city where, at the beginning of the 20th Century, it gained national notoriety for being the city people came to for gambling, drinking and divorce. In recent years it has seen something of a cultural resurgence with shopping, galleries and restaurants. Enjoy your stay in Reno by visiting the world class spas, browsing the extensive selection of shops, trying out the largest outdoor climbing wall in the world, or visiting the National Automobile Museum which features some of the most famous cars from Bill Harrah’s collection. For a more active day, try the downtown white-water kayak course or if spectator sports are more your thing, stroll the Riverwalk area.

    Lake Tahoe

    It is a short drive to Lake Tahoe, so we suggest you take a longer route along interstate 580 to visit some of the regions popular attractions; Carson City - Nevada’s Capital, Virginia City - a beautiful old Mining Town and Genoa - Nevada’s first settlement. Carson City, the state capital, is only half an hour south of Reno. Highlights along Main Street include the capitol building, Nevada state museum and Nevada state railroad museum which offers diesel or steam train rides for visitors. Carson City also boasts nine golf courses; whilst nearby Carson valley is home to vast ranches, antique shops and Victoria homes. Tahoe Ridge Winery, one of Nevada’s four wineries, has a tasting room and a restaurant in Carson Valley – a perfect place to stop for some lunch and wine tasting. Once a vital mining settlement, Virginia City is a gem of the Old West. Spend time walking the plank boardwalks, browsing the shops and dimly lit saloons, venturing into an old mine (preserved to its original layout) and ride on the Historic V&T Railroad to experience real history. Genoa is Nevada’s first settlement and a quaint little town, with beautiful scenery and “Nevada’s Oldest Thirst Palour” – Genoa Bar and Saloon, which is a key experience. Since 1853 drinks have been served at this bar which has welcomed presidents, actors and famous musicians through the years. Once in stunning Lake Tahoe, you will find picture postcard scenery of sparkling crystal clear water reflecting snow clad mountains. Lake Tahoe is a classic American lakeside resort, with log cabins, tall pine trees, soft, yellow sand beaches and a wealth of activities and water sports to keep you entertained. The north shore is anchored by the town of incline village, which boasts two golf courses, a ski resort, and two lake front hotels. The town of Stateline is situated on the south shore and is known for its large scale casino resorts, Heavenly mountain resort and Edgewood Tahoe Golf course. From South Lake Tahoe, you can board the M.S. Dixie II or the Tahoe Queen and enjoy a relaxing cruise, taking in the magnificent views of the azure coloured lake and rugged mountains. During the summer, Tahoe is perfect for water and beach activities, hiking and bicycling, whilst the winter months turn Tahoe into a skiers’ paradise, with winter sports such as tobogganing and ice skating.

The Painted Hills site showcases barren hillsides which looked brushed in hues of reds and yellows, creating a dramatic vista. Here you can take one of the five short hiking trails. Smith Rock State Park is a great place for outdoor enthusiasts. Those not brave enough to clib the rocks can take a short meander around the base of the 800ft cliffs. Once in Willamette Valley, you'll see the scenery change to rolling vineyards and food-to-table farmlands. Oregon's wine industry has moved from unknown to world-renowned.
