|New Nebraska Travel Guide explores state’s possibilities|
Whether it’s hiking and biking, an afternoon in a museum, exploring historical sites or a stay at a cozy bed and breakfast, you’ll find it in the 2009 Nebraska Travel Guide, available now.
Even in tough times, Nebraska is a great destination for travelers. In 2008, AAA named Nebraska one of the country’s most affordable destinations, and is consistently ranked among the 10 least expensive states in hotel room costs.
“Nebraska remains both an entertaining and cost effective vacation option for the savvy traveler,” said Christian Hornbaker, director of the Nebraska Department of Economic Development’s Travel and Tourism Division.
“The guide is a must-have for the 2009 travel season.”
The 192-page guide has new features in 2009, including a special section highlighting Nebraska’s hunting and fishing opportunities (produced in tandem with the Nebraska Game & Parks Commission), two kids pages full of fun activities, an entertaining section full of wacky Nebraska facts, feature stories about the best things the state has to offer, updated helpful maps and a newly revised lodging section that makes bed and breakfasts, guest ranches and other niche lodging facilities easier to find.
The guide is also, for the first time, printed on recycled paper.
Best of all, you can start planning your vacation without spending a dime: the Nebraska Travel Guide is free. Order online, or save time and download it as a PDF to your home computer, at www.VisitNebraska.gov.
