Cheap flights to Nebraska

Nebraska is one of the 50 United States of America that lies in both the Great Plains and the Midwestern United States. The state capital is Lincoln, while its largest city is Omaha, which is on the Missouri River. Nebraska is bordered by South Dakota to the north, Iowa to the east, and Missouri to the southeast, across the Missouri River; Kansas to the south, Colorado to the southwest, and finally Wyoming to the west. The state has 93 counties; it occupies the central portion of the Frontier Strip. The state is also one of the many states in the United States which is split into two time zones.

Nebraska is crossed and has been the host of many historic trails, and was explored by the Lewis and Clark Expedition. The California Gold Rush brought the first large numbers of non-indigenous settlers to the area, and since then, Nebraska became a state (1867).

What to see & do

The Cornhusker State, Nebraska has beautiful river valleys and a stark bleakness that is both enticing and entrancing. Its links to the world's and the United States' colourful history give tone to its existence – the presence of dinosaur remains, Native American culture, and toils of hardy settlers providing a dramatic storyline. Dots of lovely little towns litter the state with more colours, while the city centres of Omaha and Lincoln gives it more character.

Home to the brick and cobblestone Old Market, a vibrant fashion scene, a young art scene, and a lively music scene, Omaha is one of the best places to be in Nebraska. A quick pit stop won't give this place justice, because there is just so much to see. When visiting Omaha, make sure to drop by the art-deco Union Station housing the Durham Museum, the Riverfront, and the Union Pacific Railroad Museum located across the river in Council Bluffs.

Home to the historic Haymarket District, the capital of Nebraska, Lincoln, is more than meets the eye. Thanks to the huge downtown campus of the University of Nebraska, Lincoln has kept its youth – and thanks to its multitude of parks that it has been catapulted as a great place to live in. When visiting Lincoln, make sure to visit the State Capitol, the State Museum, the Museum of Nebraska History, the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery, and the city's many wonderful parks.

Dubbed as 'America's Heart City' due to its relatively obvious and give-away name, Valentine is a great base for canoeing, kayaking, and inner tubing the winding canyons of the Niobrara National Scenic River. The river crosses the Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge, and passes by sheer limestone bluffs, lush forests, and spring-fed waterfalls. Try and visit the area during off-peak seasons (summer is the peak season) to skip the lines and the flocks.
