LINCOLN, Neb. – State officials want foreign tourists to know there’s more to Nebraska than fields of corn and soybeans along Interstate 80.
There’s history everywhere, and real cowboys still round up cattle in the rolling hills.
Not wanting the state’s delights to get lost in language barriers, Nebraska officials used a $56,000 federal grant to redesign the state’s Nebraska Byways brochure and create Web pages for downloading in English, Spanish, French and German.
The Lincoln Journal Star says the brochure includes information on nine trips along U.S. and state highways that course through rural areas of Nebraska.
