Facts

When to visit:

Nebraska’s prime tourist season is during the summer months from Labor Day through Memorial Day, but it isn’t a state that gets unduly crowded, and prices aren’t terribly steep. Springs are very pleasant as well, and visitors are less likely to encounter peak-season prices. Fall is Nebraska’s 2nd most popular season, when visitors can enjoy a number of fairs and harvest festivals. Winter is the slowest time for tourism in Nebraska.
