A leisurely stroll down Central Avenue in Nebraska City, Nebraska. A charming small town with lots of preserved Old West buildings and fun second-hand shopping. Only an hour from Lincoln or Omaha by car, this area lies on the Missouri River and had a rich history of American settlement.
Every January a herd of longhorn steers are herded through the streets of downtown Denver, Colorado. They lead the National Western Stock Show Kick-off Parade. In addition to the longhorns, there are cowboys, cowgirls, cowkids, tons of horses, wagons and stagecoaches, and countless fun western-type things to see!
A daytrip by car from Las Vegas, Nevada, to the spectacular South Rim of the Grand Canyon. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity was provided by the wonderful National Park System in the USA. Breathtaking views and updated amenities, plus a visit to the historic El Tovar Hotel in Grand Canyon Village.
