Interstate 80

Fort Cody - North Platte, Nebraska

North Platte, Nebraska
Buffalo Bill’s Home Town
Fort Cody, at the jct. of Interstate 80 and U.S. 83, is one of Nebraska’s most interesting tourist stops. Built of heavy logs, with sentry towers, complete with “armed guards,” it is a replica of the fortifications of 1860 to 1875 era. North Platte is truly proud to be home of the old Buffalo Bill Ranch, now a Nebraska State Park.

Nevada is filled with low flat valleys crisscrossed by asphalt rays that extend through the scrub as far as the eye can see. You can take Interstate 80, dotted with the usual service islands and chain food joints, or you can choose the old route 50 or a myriad of other two lane backroads which hop from ghost town to ghost town at exactly the same speed limit.
