Visit Nebraska -

The state of Nebraska is located in the Midwestern part of the United States. Its name was derived from an Otoe Indian word that means 'flat water'. The name was mainly used by the indigenous Indians to refer to the Platte River which runs directly through the middle of the state.
Before the Europeans arrived in America, Nebraska was home to the Omaha Indian tribe, the Otoe tribe, the Pawnee and Ponca tribes many of which maintain a strong presence in the state. The Indians lived near the state’s many rivers which contributed to the amalgamation of the varied cultures of indigenous people.
Nebraska was admitted to the Union in March of 1867, approximately two years after the American Civil War ended slavery. The state’s founders named the new capital city Lincoln after President Abraham Lincoln. With a population of more than 258,000 people, Lincoln is the second largest city in the state and it is home to the University of Nebraska.
Although the state has three rivers that run its length, it is a landlocked state divided into ninety-three counties. The Platte river, the Niobrara, and the Republican river all run through the state and provide life giving water and a commercial corridor the state depends on for a large part of its gross domestic product.
An interesting fact about Nebraska is that it is divided into two time zones. The western half of the state is situated in the Mountain Time Zone and the eastern half is situated in the Central Time Zone. Almost every city in the state has a place of interest for tourists which makes tourism one of the state’s main industries.  Tourists by the thousands flock to places such as the Durham Museum, the Arbor Lodge State Historical Park, the Grant County Museum and Frank House in Kearney. The Union Pacific Bailey Railroad Yard also attracts railroad enthusiasts from every part of the world.
Arbor Day is an official state holiday. It was inspired by the native’s zeal to plant trees and to nurture the environment. Mr. J. Starling Morton, one of Nebraska's earliest and most renowned citizens pushed for legislation to make Arbor Day a legal state holiday.
Nebraska is blessed with a wide range of natural beauties. The state offers vast prairies, beautiful majestic bluffs and buttes as well as thousands of acres of grass-covered sand dunes. To travel the state, tourists use one of nine scenic and historic byways some of which have been labeled historical areas and are protected by the state.
