Here's what Explore had to say about the absolute best place to vacation in the entire state:

"From February to April each year, about a half million sandhill cranes descend on Kearney, Nebraska for migration, the single largest gathering in the world. To experience this magic, head to one of the many viewing decks. Ft. Kearny State Recreation Area offers excellent views from its Trail Bridge. The Crane Trust in Wood River offers a VIP experience with an overnight stay in their cottages and suites, as well as a guided tour from the comfort of viewing blinds."
