Nebraska Bucket List ~ Southeast Region

Today we move to the Southeast corner of Nebraska, which contains the state capitol of Lincoln. There is a fair amount of things that sound interesting to me in this region!


  • Eugene T. Mahony State Park: Great place to hike just outside the Omaha metro area.


  • Homestead National Monument: National Park site that commemorates the Homestead Act.


  • Meriwether Lewis Dredge and Missouri River History Museum: One of a few left of it’s kind of a an example built to improve flooding conditions along the river.


  • Nebraska State Capitol: One of the top three tallest capitol buildings in the United States.
  • Pioneer Park Nature Center: Contains 8 miles of trains through woodland, prairies, and wetlands.


  • Platte River State Park: Forested park located between Lincoln and Omaha. This park is located near the river and has some unique water features.
