In early May, two reporters set off for a three-day trip to western Nebraska. Our goal? A journey of discovery (paired with sampling plenty of pizza). We had some ideas about which of our state’s many attractions we wanted to visit, but we also wanted to be able to stop and explore when we spotted something shiny on the side of the road.

We accomplished both.

We returned home road weary -- Nebraska looks so much smaller on the map! -- and with a top 10 list to share.
