Area Visitors Bureau
FAR FROM ORDINARY; FAR FROM EXPECTATIONS Perceptions of Nebraska from non-residents is typically only as far as the eye can see from I-80. In Western Nebraska, we offer a different and unique perspective than anticipated. Our diverse landscapes and natural beauty go hand-in-hand with our sporting opportunities. Visitors can experience a 20-110 mile gravel mountain bike race in the Robidoux Rendezvous, held every year in June. Or, run the Monument Marathon and earn points to qualify for the Boston Marathon in Nebraska’s most beautiful full or half marathon. The event has been held annually in September for the past eleven years. Additionally, Western Nebraska IS flyover country for 50+ hot air balloons during our annual Old West Balloon Fest held every summer. Prefer something less adventurous? Visit a golf course that is host to both the Nebraska Girls and Boys Class B State Golf Championship, multiple baseball diamonds, a state-of-the-art gymnastics studio, a newly updated soccer complex, and arenas for livestock shows and competitions.
