Editors' 15 Favorite Midwest Getaways
Nebraska's Fort Robinson State Park
"You can practically touch the legends hanging in the air around Fort Robinson State Park's craggy bluffs and old cavalry buildings. A stone marker shows where legendary warrior Crazy Horse died. In the museum, two fossilized mammoths lie in midbattle for eternity. Families stay in historical cabins built from barracks that once quartered soldiers. And on guided Jeep or horse rides up into the buttes, you can gaze down on hillsides where the Cheyenne Outbreak played out. The state park features live performances at an on-site theater and a full-service restaurant."
