I really like living here in North Platte because I know where everything is. I mean seriously, I've lived in some of the largest cities in the world and a few of the smallest. I've gotten lost more times than I can count, and moving here has changed that. The layout is manageable and the traffic flow is a breath of fresh air.
With a plethora of parks to choose from, you can take your date out or just yourself and enjoy what they have to offer. I know the North Platte Regional Airport stays very busy during the summer months and that is for good reason I suppose. I know that you would enjoy a weekend here to get a feel for the town.
Taking a trip over to Love's Travel Stop, or coming back west to the Spike Tower, you will be amazed bout how quaint and manageable living is right here in North Platte. Give it a chance and it will grow on you, I promise.
