6. Nebraska City, Nebraska

Staying at Lied Lodge with its beautiful scenery, large swimming pool and beautiful walking trails is great for the entire family. Hike the trail to the apple orchard and the Arbor Day Farm Adventure where you can climb the 50-foot tree house, learn about bird calls and just enjoy the great outdoors. I’m so amazed that this place exists right in Nebraska! The best time to visit is in the fall when the apples are ready for picking.
