Fly to Scottsbluff
If you'd like to visit a place with beautiful vistas of the Great Plains, fly to Scottsbluff. Here, you can get a feel for traditional American mid-western cuisine, and you can relax in a place with a small town charm.
The city itself is located on the flat lands, and you can get a view of the Scotts Bluff National Monument from anywhere in town. The main bluff rises up 800 feet, and you can hike up one of several marked trails to get an unobstructed view of the North Platte River below.
Between the Monument and town, you'll find the Riverside Discovery Center, where you can see a variety of wild and domestic animals. The Monument Valley Pathway is where you can stretch your legs or take a long bike ride along the paved path. It runs along the North Platte River, close to the route that the original pioneers took as they traveled the Oregon Trail.
