Northwest Nebraska Tourism

Northwest Nebraska defies expectations. You won’t find cornfields and flat landscapes here. Instead, you’ll find a rich historical and geologic record and an unexpected pine forest. From the towering buttes and the sweeping features of the Oglala National Grassland, Northwest Nebraska defines the Great American Road Trip. Throw in a lunar landscape and a budding arts and culture scene, and there is truly No Better Direction.

The region is accessible by two of Nebraska’s specially-designated scenic byways – the 385 Gold Rush Scenic Byway and the Bridges to Buttes Scenic Byway. Additional, what is known as the “Fossil Freeway” connects you to several stops that tell the story of the area’s fossil history, reaching from the southern Panhandle to southern South Dakota.

This is a place for people to explore and discover new things, a place for people who want to get off the interstate and away from the crowds, a place for people who want to find themselves by getting lost.
