Welcome to Nebraska

Nebraska is a state located on the Great Plains of the Midwestern United States. Lincoln is the state's capital and Omaha is its largest city. The state of Nebraska is named after the Platte River from the French meaning "broad river." Prairies extend for miles, pine-covered buttes dot the landscape, fields of wheat bend in the breeze, and herds of cattle roam on vast grazing lands. Once considered part of the Great American Desert (actually highly biodiverse prairie land), it is now a leading farming and ranching state, with the nation's largest population of domesticated llamas.

"The Cornhusker State" officially replaced "The Tree Planters State" in 1945 in recognition of The University of Nebraska football team, the Cornhuskers. The "Cornhusker State" appeared on Nebraska license plates from 1969 to 1975.
