When I was in fifth or sixth grade I did a "state report" on Nebraska. I remember writing to the tourism office, which mailed me a lot of nice materials, which I appreciated.

Only missed the river. Only been to Nebraska once. We drove through there in 2000 on our way out to California. So many bugs in the air by the time we got to Wyoming it looked like we had slaughtered an animal on the hood of my car.

Funny enough, Nebraska has more miles of river than any US State (except perhaps Alaska). Source: https://www.triptrivia.com/answer-which-u-s-state-has-most-miles-of-rivers/ Most of them are just wide and shallow, and meander across the landscape, with the exception of the Missouri River, which makes up the border with Iowa. https://www.triptrivia.com/answer-which-u-s-state-has-most-miles-of-rivers/

I've driven through Nebraska several times and this didn't sound possible to me so I did some research. According to the government's National Wild and Scenic Rivers website, Nebraska has only around 79,000 miles of rivers with 197 miles designated wild or scenic, while number one Alaska has around 365,000 miles of river. California, Montana, Oregon, and Idaho round out the top five in that order. https://www.rivers.gov/nebraska.php
