Nebraska City, Nebraska

Family activities star in the hometown of Arbor Day founder J. Sterling Morton where historic barns, a cafe, a market and the family-friendly Tree Adventure (with a soaring tree house) at Arbor Day Farm offer more than enough to fill a day. Other things to do in Nebraska City include Arbor Lodge State Historical Park and Nebraska City Museum of Firefighting and Education Center.
