    Stop as long as u want! Memorial stadium is pretty cool. If your looking for a good steak, check out The Steak House on Cornhusker and 33rd. A bit pricey, but worth the treat.

    I've been through north platte, and thought the train yards looked interesting from the highway. Unfortunately, I was short on time both times I went through there, and did not have time to stop for more than gas. Try google earth to investigate things.

    As for lincoln... I remember drinking and eating at a weird little place called the "Tam O'Shanter".
