Voice of Travelers to Kearney
Kearney is a realy fantastic place
This week I visited Kearney in Nebraska and it is a really fantastic place. I live in Denver, Colorado,and so I could buy a direct flight ticket to Kearney Regional Airport. I booked my ticket online and arrived on time for my flight. On arriving in Kearney, I took a cab to The Great Platte River Road Archway Monument Archway which is three miles east of Kearney. It sits directly over Interstate 80. There are many exhibits with explanations on the History of Kearney. From there I visited Yanney Park, which is 10 minutes from I-80, and where you'll find nice playgrounds, a splash pad for the kids, an outdoor gym, an observatory, and fishing for fun. I realy enjoyed my time in Kearney city.
Good memories of Kearney
I have good memeories of Kearney, Nebraska. I went there with a community group in Omaha and had lot of fun. We booked our ticket early enough.We arrived at Eppley Airfield around one and hours before the flight. This was to ensure we had enough time to check-in at the airline ticket counter. We departed at around 6:00 am and landed in Kearney as scheduled. The city of Kearney features over 18 miles of historical trails which gave us a perfect opprotunity for our rollerblading and mountain biking activities. We also went to the the Kearney Community Theater and were treated to a very hilarious play. In the evening, we visited Hammon park, and we enjoyed on the Olympic size swimming pool. The guys in our park enjoyed playing on the tennis and basketball courts. I will readily jump on any opportunity to go back to Kearney.
