Nebraska is a land that still harbours the undiscovered. The vast state, which takes nearly eight hours to cross by car, includes a plethora of landscapes: yawning prairie, enormous sculpted rocks, wicked badlands, scenic rivers and of course, it has hundreds of miles of renowned, undulating grasslands. The sunsets are some of the best in the world; the sky seems never ending and the rich hues of pink, red and purple are breathtaking. The spirit of the American West lives here still: cowboys still work cattle, and ranches cover thousands of acres in the central part of the state; guest ranches give tourists the opportunity to experience it all at first hand. The people here are as memorable as the scenery - get off the beaten path and take in a warm piece of pie and some Midwestern hospitality at a small town cafe. Enjoy a glass of wine at one of Nebraska's wineries, or go to a local festival for a taste of ethnic flavours. But the best part of Nebraska? It's quiet. Turn off your mobile phone. Unplug the laptop. Put away the files. Relax, breathe in the fresh air and rejuvenate your soul. Nebraska will take you places you've never been before.
