From our tour guide Bill Burdett:
The Sandhills of Nebraska are, without a doubt, one of the most beautiful and unique expanses of geography in the entire U.S. – one of the top 10 per the late traveler extraordinaire, Charles Kuralt. Come along with us as we not only enjoy the Sandhills Journey Scenic Byway (SJSB) from the Platte River valley at Grand Island to Alliance on the high plains at the western end of the hills, but we also check out a wide variety of art, geography, and history along the way. We’ll meet people that are close to the land – and can tell us about the land – and have been here for generations. Special evening events will put smiles on our faces and be the catalysts for great fall sleeping as we dream about more of this entertaining and never-to-be-forgotten journey!
