My 40th State
At long last, I got to my 40th state. It’s nothing grand or famous like other states but their slogan said it’s the good one. Welcome to Nebraska! Nebraska is a midwestern state encompassing the prairies of the Great Plains, the towering dunes of the Sandhills and the panhandle’s dramatic rock formations.
I did a quick glance on where to visit and I saw these intriguing sites like an amazing rock formations, weird tourist attraction, a bridge and a castle. So, the state offers a wide range of touristic value. Here’s the list of the places I’ve visited:
- Scotts Bluff National Monument
Scotts Bluff has impressive rock formations. It is appealing and picturesque. It’s beautiful all year around. The National Monument is located in Old Oregon Trail in Gering, Nebraska.
If England has Stonehenge, the United States has the Carhenge. The creator got inspiration from the Stonehenge since he has been working as a petroleum engineer in England. He made it in his homeland in Alliance, NE. Since he doesn’t have the stone slabs, he used cars instead. They’re pretty cool to look at though.
- Bob Kerrey Pedestrian Bridge
The pedestrian bridge is located in Omaha which is also close to state line of Iowa. There were a lot of hikers, joggers and dog walkers in the bridge. It was clean and kept well with the bridge at 3,000-foot long.
- Joslyn Castle
The castle was designated as an Omaha landmark and was added to the National Register of Historic Places. It was built in the Scottish Baronial style. The mansion castle has four stories.
Nebraska was my 40th state. It was a memorable trip. The state has rich culture, nice infrastructure and adventurous ideas. My trip has been postponed many times but at last, it came to reality and Nebraska was the state I got to travel and explore first.
