Lincoln, the state capital, is a great place for cheap vacations to Nebraska. The state capital has a long list of free and low-cost attractions, all within a day's drive of Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, Denver, and Minneapolis. At the University of Nebraska State Museum, visitors can ponder the wonders of the universe and examine fossils, all for a few dollars a visit.

Heading outdoors, Lincoln visitors can watch wildlife and go hiking at the Pioneers Park Nature Center and Wilderness Park. Free tours are offered regularly at the State Capitol building.

Nebraska vacation packages that are perfect for groups, couples, or individuals can be arranged in Nebraska City. With activities like wine tasting, golfing, carriage rides, and spa treatments, the Arbor Day Farm Lied Lodge and local bed and breakfast inns offer relaxing Nebraska getaways that combine accommodations with activities. Family-friendly attractions are abundant here, too. With hiking at the Arbor Day Farm Tree Adventure, River County Nature Center, or Steamboat Trail along the Missouri River, visitors can spend time rather than a lot of money.

Another way to enjoy cheap vacations to Nebraska is to do a lot in one city. Without a lot of travel time and gas to burn, travelers can concentrate on having fun rather than sitting in traffic. With a concentration of attractions, Ashland is a smart choice to include in Nebraska getaways without a lot of driving.

Nebraska's biggest city is also well suited for travel packages in the sophisticated set.

Another way to combine value and vacation into one package is to spend time at one of Nebraska's state parks.
