This week I am continuing to highlight one of my “favorite places”, Visit Alliance NE. I captured this incredible sunset overlooking the farmland from my 3rd floor room at the new Holiday Inn Express Alliance (1630 Holsten Dr., Alliance, NE). It was simply breathtaking!
My last visit to Alliance was over 30 years ago. I am in awe of how much this small railroad town has grown with so many things to do and see for families of all ages. Yet, it has retained its small town Midwest charm with a population of approximately 8000.
What sets Alliance apart is the genuine friendly people & gracious hospitality. Everywhere you go people say hello, they welcome you to their businesses and to their town of Alliance, Nebraska. As an East Coast Virginia girl, it is so refreshing to see this type of gracious hospitality still exists in America!
There is so much to do and see depending on the season you visit including the Knight Museum and Sandhills Center, Sallows Military Museum, Carhenge, Carnegie Arts Center - Alliance, Nebraska, along with beautiful parks, festivities and quaint local shops including my favorite, Posh Shoppe! I will be featuring my visits to Knights Museum & Carhenge later this week.
Alliance is located in the Panhandle region of western Nebraska. There are many options for accommodations from motels to air bnb’s. It is a 3 hour 50 minute drive from Denver. Or you can be like me and take a one hour flight on Boutique Air directly from Denver to Alliance. Boutique Air now has a code share agreement with United Airlines, too!
I look forward to my next visit to Alliance! @visit_nebraska .
