Specifically, the town of Valentine, was named by National Geographic Adventure Magazine, in 2009, as one of their top ten Adventure towns in the Wilderness Category.
North central Nebraska is a part of the central flyway migration and is perfect for bird lovers. Plants and animals are in abundance and live together peacefully.
Just because we're located in the middle of nowhere - quite literally - doesn't mean that we are an uncivilized bunch...quite the contrary. There is always something to do regardless of the weather - even if it's just to chill out and look at the stars. Or if the weather is too hot, or too cold, there's always shopping with some wonderful, quaint, shops downtown, and some restaurants who serve excellent food! Some of our businesses have received awards for their imagination, ingenuity, and great tasting steaks.
Browse through this comprehensive website and see that truly, there's something for everyone in your family or group...there are even things even your pet would enjoy.
