This Mississippi River community has its roots in Lewis and Clark’s explorations, something it’s very proud of. The town thrived during the steamboat era, since it was an ideal trading and transportation stop. It’s main claim to fame is that the establishment of Arbor Day came out of Nebraska City! Naturally, this holiday is a huge deal in the town. If you visit this friendly community, you can enjoy a trip to the Lewis and Clark Visitor Center, the Mayhew Cabin (Nebraska’s only Underground Railroad site), and Abor Lodge.
