If you like U.S. history and find yourself driving across Nebraska on I-80 with an hour to kill, a good place to stop is at the old original Pony Express Station in Gothenburg Nebraska. Originally a Fur Trading post on the Oregon Trail, it became a Pony Express stop in 1854.
Hours are limited to the daytime but admission is free and they have a nice gift shop there. While in Gothenburg enjoy other museums, dining, recreation and camping....and don't forget to check out the wagon wheel ruts from the pioneers on the Oregon trail nearby....you can still see them after 160 years!
There is something for everyone here - it's a great place to stop for an hour or overnight.
