Event information

The walk goes across and along the South Platte River; through parks; and past architecturally historic homes, a children's museum and the North Platte Canteen located along the main rail line of the Union Pacific. The Canteen and citizens of North Platte hosted over 6 million GIs during WWII as they passed through! Complete this interesting walk by viewing historic St. Mary's Hospital, the Neville Center, the Pawnee Hotel and a fire station. The Old Lincoln Highway is part of this route, as is a western mural reminding you that you are "Out West". Primarily on paved walkways, sidewalks and streets.
