6 Reasons to Visit Weeping Water Valley #CaffeinatedRoadTrip

Head out of town this summer, and into Weeping Water Valley!  

1. Limestone Days – Weeping Water’s Limestone Days fall on the weekend before the 4th of July and make it the busiest weekend in Weeping Water – After the county fair.

Everything you love about small town festivals happens during Limestone Days.  From a parade and fishing contest, to a street dance and Hillbilly Triathalon the fun contiues from Friday morning through Saturday night and ends with a Fireworks Extravaganza.  I love Limestone Days.  I wish our Caffeinated Roadtrip could have happened on that weekend.  Hubs’ has never seen anything like it.

2.  Glamping at Slattery Vintage Estates and Vineyards – Who knew that in little Weeping Water, Nebraska you could go glamping!  If you are unfamiliar with that term, its glamours camping and it is amazing.  No fighting with tents here, or sleeping on the ground.  At Slattery Vintage Estates and Vineyard their Glamping tents come with real beds, and a breakfast to write home about.

3.  Weeping Water Museum began with the Heritage House and has grown to several buildings, which are quite extensive for a town of only 1,100 people.  See frontier life, visit a doctors office from the late 1800’s

5.  Lincoln Sport Parachute Club – with a small airport just outside of Weeping Water, the Lincoln Sport Parachute Club offers several types of jumps and does some great exhibition jumps around the state.  We have watched them jump for years from my Grandparents front yard!
