You will find lodging in Ashland
Nebraska along the exits of Interstate 80, the major east-west highway in
the state. It parallels the former major road, historic Route 6, the longest
highway ever built in the United States, stretching across fourteen states from
on the Atlantic Ocean to California
on the Pacific. These will be almost all Ashland Nebraska motels that provide
ample parking, usually just steps from your room. Since the primary form of
transportation in this region is by automobile, this is convenient whether you
are driving your own vehicle or have taken advantage of car
rentals. Additionally, if you detour off the main highway to drive along
Route 6, you will be able to discover little hidden gems and attractions that
you might miss if whizzing along the Interstate at more than 60 miles per hour.
