There are just so many wonderful things about Nebraska: friendly people, good food, good football, and lots of memories. Most of these things deserve their own post, so I'll make this one about the beauty of Nebraska.
The Sunken Gardens are near downtown Lincoln. They are built on what used to be a dump. As a teenager I would often go down there with friends or with my family and walk around. It is one of my "must-sees" when I visit Lincoln.
The ponds and fish are always a hit with the kids.
