Thanks for your great ideas. Keep them coming.
Busskipper, we have taken Rt. 36 to Hannibal twice and enjoyed stopping along the way, especially at Marysville, KS and Hannibal. We avoid taking the interstates when we take this trip and love the side trips. The only thing I don't like going cross country is the tornados. We saw one coming toward us last year, ended up in a shelter for 2 hrs. Very scary in a motor home! This will be our 4th time to take the CO grandkids camping.

Ash Hollow is a nice little place for a break. You can see old depressions marking the Oregon Trail. The cave is more of a rock shelter.

The Strategic Air Command Museum is right off I-80 between Lincoln and Omaha. For airplane buffs, well worth a stop. They even have an SR-71 there.
Minden also gets my vote.
The Blue Ox factory is in Pender, NE - a bit off the beaten path north of Omaha.

biggswv4, it would be helpful to know which route you intend to travel. If you travel the "flats" of I80 all the previous suggestions are appropriate. Personally, we prefer to travel the "scenic" routes in northern Nebraska (highway 20)...you get to see the more "rolling" prairie effect along that route but, unfortunately, it would be a longer route coming from Estes Park. Hope you see some of the enjoyable parts of our great state....IMHO, of course

Understand about the weather -- but it is just so much happen-chance -- made three trips out this spring and just missed some big storms -- if you have the time and can get into some of Nebraska's more attractive and un-level areas IMHO it would be a more exciting drive. Enjoy the Grandkids -- we just had twin Granddaughter to add to the 4 and 6 year olds so we will be making that trip even more often. If you find a good route be sure to share it with the rest of us.

dadd45, we also prefer the scenic, 2 lane routes, but we wanted to visit the best of Nebraska...places we shouldn't miss and will take whatever routes to do so. We plan on looking around for about 4 days I'd guess from what suggestions we've been given. We'll check out Hwy 20 too. Thanks.

Hello,
In Paxton there is a bar and grill called Ole's. He was a big game hunter and there are animals from all around the world that have been mounted and are on display.

Biggs, I've driven all the main east/west highways thur Nebraska. If I had 4 days/3 nights to visit the state. Day #1-I would enter the state on 26 & visit the Scottsbuff area. Day #2 drive to & stop at Buffalo Bills place and drive to Pioneer Village for the night, they have a campground. If you get there in the afternoon, and pay the fee for that day's ticket and your next day visit to the village is free. Then i'd make my way to Louisville Ne. to the Louisville State Rec Area. From there I'd go to the Omaha Zoo. I've been to several zoos, inculding the San Diego Zoo. It's the best.

You might like the Cabelas in Sidney. It is the home store. They've got a lot of stores now, so it is not the destination that it used to be. But still worth a visit IMO.
