What to Experience when Glamping in Nebraska


Tanking

Grab some friends and climb into a big tub for watering livestock and down the river you go. This may sound weird, but it one of the unique things to do in Nebraska. Relax with a cold drink as you float down the slow-moving water and take turns with the paddle. Just try not to get dizzy paddling in circles.

Carhenge

Think Stonehenge but with cars. Yes, that is exactly what this is. This art piece is made up of 39 vintage American cars stacked and situated like the ancient stone structure of Stonehenge in England. Great spot for a picture and another very unique thing to see in Nebraska.
