Come experience the "TrailBlaze Maze" attraction, the only maze located between Chicago and Denver along Interstate 80. Run through a wild and crazy labyrinth of twists and turns as you race against the clock for fun and prizes. This fort-like maze spans 4,800-square-feet and includes four checkpoints that allow you to stamp your "passport."
An adventure that links our nation, that will transport you back in time to an era when covered wagons, hand-pulled carts, and trains first criss-crossed the prairies. The Great Platte River Road Archway is an interactive adventure that pays tribute to the pioneers who passed through Nebraska on their way West. These entrepreneurs were shaped by what they saw and experienced, and they have given America a heritage that is a living spirit that molds our nation's character today.
You have to see it to believe it!

Holdrege Celebrates Swedish Heritage
Summertime often means spending time with friends and rural communities are taking that to heart, gathering together to share their heritage.
The small town of Holdrege is beaming with Swedish pride this weekend during its annual "Swedish Days" festival. This celebration has been going on for at least 30 years, even garnering an Outstanding Event Award last year from the Department of Tourism.
Officials and community members both agree that it's the pride of the heritage that makes the town what it is.
