A very pretty area just below the notch. Hiking trails, state parks, trained bears and a water park nearby. The hotels are poor and very dated though so stay in Lincoln itself to be comfortable.

Saw a ton of Indian Head businesses so I had to see what the buzz was about. Found it and didn't see what it was all about. But then again, I don't see all those things my wife sees in clouds.

Even if you're not staying at the Indian Head resort, stop by and climb the tower. Open daily except bad weather and snow.
