100 Things to Do in Nebraska Before You Die by Tim and Lisa Trudell.
Nebraska has earned many slogans over the years, from "The Beef State" to "The Cornhusker State," but its moniker "The Good Life" sums up the vast majority of Nebraskans' opinion of their state. Whether its Cornhusker football in the fall or canoeing the Niobrara River in the summer, Nebraska is a special place. And with 100 Things to Do in Nebraska Before You Die as your guide, you'll see just what it is people love so much about the state.
The book is a veritable bucket list of places to visit, things to do, and top tips for the best places to eat and sleep. Explore the birthplaces of Nebraska-centric events and people, like the founder of Arbor Day and the hometown of Johnny Carson. As Nebraska's best -known natural attraction, Chimney Rock served as a landmark for pioneers headed west in the 1800s. Nebraska also enjoys its quirky side, like Carhenge, a Stonehenge replica made of cars, or the Taylor Villagers, an art project using life-size cutouts of locals around town as a tourist attraction.
Local authors and travel bloggers Tim and Lisa Trudell are your expert guides through the diversity and beauty of the country's sixteenth largest state. Whether you call yourself a Husker or are just passing through, this book will help you see Nebraska in a new light.
