Nebraska Life hit the road in search of five small communities that live large despite their size. This installment of “5 Towns Under 500” takes us to Lynch, Bellwood, Byron, Lemoyne and Harrison where we discover that bigger isn’t necessarily better, and that these small communities are big deals for those who live, work, play and raise families here.
Amid Auburn’s pretty countryside you’ll discover historic architecture, elegant Victorian homes from the early 20th century, a rare pair of thriving downtowns and an eclectic array of restaurants that caters to this diverse and growing city of nearly 3,500 residents.
The summer months are peak season for water sports, but we bet you never expected to fall in love with autumn on the Niobrara. Dream along with a family of veteran river guides as they peacefully drift on an offseason course down this beloved waterway.
Congratulations to Juli Habegger of Pawnee City. Juli answered our recent reader survey and her name was drawn for a vacation package to Valentine. Watch future issues of Nebraska Life for more opportunities to win.
