Nebraska isn’t just a fly-over state – it’s the Heartland’s hidden gem! In most places around the world, people may find it a bit strange if someone on the street or at the store strikes up a conversation with them while they’re going about their daily business. In Nebraska this isn’t the case! The epitome of Midwestern friendliness, a Nebraskan can walk into a room and instantly become friends with everyone.
