Unusual and Exciting Places to Visit in Nebraska
Nebraska offers many great things to tourists, from excellent food and attractions in Omaha and Lincoln, to traveling the trails along Hudson Meng Bison Kill Site . Whatever you want to do, you are likely to find it on your Nebraska Vacation.
If you keep a sharp eye out, you will also see some very different sights, unique things that you never new existed throughout various Nebraska tourism regions. Of course, when you spot these things, you will likely be compelled to stop and find out what all the fuss is.
One of the unique and more interesting things you will find on your trek through Nebraska is Carhenge. It is a celebration of the surreal!
As the title implies, this is a replica of one Stonehenge, one of the most famous sites in the world. The only change is that instead of monolithic slabs of rock, this structure is made completely from the hulks of old automobiles.
Carhenge is not the only sculpture in the park, of course. The Spawning Salmon, created by master sculpturist Sandhurst shows a giant fish rising from the ground. Dino, is a sculpture of a large dinosaur that looks similar to a Tyrannosaurus Rex. The Fourd Seasons is a sculpture that is very specific to the state – it shows the four stages of the wheat that is grown in the state. The Carnestoga is a station wagon that is scuplted to resemble a Conestoga wagon from times past – it even has wagon wheels and “horses” hitched to the front!
Carhenge is open 365 days a year, and the preferred visiting hours are during the day. Admission to the park is totally free, but they willingly accept donations. These donations are used for the maintenance and upkeep of the area.
So enjoy your tour through Nebraska – you will be glad that you found it!
