The small town of North Platte is located in the southwestern part of Nebraska and is notably home to the world's largest rail yard, Bailey Yard, which can be seen best from the Golden Spike Tower and Visitor Center. You can also tour the home of Col. William F. Buffalo Bill Cody. You will find the rich history of the early days of Lincoln County at the North Platte Historical Museum, including a large display of Native American artifacts, and a western heritage village. You can fill your days with visits to many other attractions, including America's 20th Century Veterans Memorial, the Stones and Bones Emporium and Gallery, the Cody Park Railroad Museum, Cody Go-Karts and the Dancing Leaf Cultural Learning Center, among many more.
