On your next trip to North Platte, make sure to consider employing our North Platte car hire services as your main means of transportation through the city. Interesting to know that the name of the city was determined by the flip of a coin.
Despite the rather small size of the city, it is served by the North Platte Airport but you can also reach the place by road. If you do land here you can have our North Platte car rental services have a car ready and waiting for you at the airport at an hour that you specify.
The city could have become nothing more than a traditional small town in rural Nebraska but due to the building of a reclassification yard for Union Pacific, the largest in the world actually, more than four thousand employees are required to service more than a hundred and fifty trains per day.
While not a tourist town, North Platte does have a couple unique sights to its name, the upper mentioned Bailey Yard being one of them and the Buffalo Bill Ranch State Historic Park being another example.
The Golden Spike Tower and Visitor Center feature an observation tower with two observation decks which overlook the bailey Yard.
The Cody Park Wild West Memorial is situated near the site of the 1882 Old Glory Blowout which was the forerunner of Cody’s Wild West Show; it features a larger-than-life statue donated to the town by the United Kingdom.
The Feather River Vineyards are the largest in the state and they are open for private parties and group tours. Tents are set up so that you can enjoy your party in the midst of the grape vines and there are plenty of seasonal activities available which include picnics, sleigh rides and hay-rack rides.
These are of course only a few of the things that you can see and do while in North Platte, so make sure to employ our North Platte car hire services in order to better experience this town and its surroundings.
