Historical
wildbunch2Ride with the Wild Bunch Group Tour When “Hell on Wheels” rolled into what was to become North Platte in December of 1866, the community’s roots as a wild and wooly frontier town were firmly established. Such characters as Buffalo Bill, General Custer, Wild Bill Hickock and their contemporaries walked our streets and bellied up to our bars. Buffalo Bill created his Wild West Show here and the famed gentleman himself will be on hand to greet your group when you book a Ride with the Wild Bunch tour.

 

 

 

Platform GirlsCanteen Spirit Tour
Some of the most heartwarming stories in North Platte’s history come from the war years and the homefront effort of the World War II Canteen. As Rae Wilson’s letter states “We can help this way when we can’t help in any other way”. Local volunteers made it happen, meeting every single troop train from Christmas Day 1941 through April 1, 1946 and serving over 6 million service men and women.

 

 

 

 

Highway 30Highway 30 Tour
The year was 1913, and Carl G. Fisher decided that there should be a transcontinental highway. What is now U.S. Highway 30 eventually became America’s first transcontinental highway, following the heart of the Platte River Valley, a route that had been used by travelers from the time of the earliest Native Americans. You’ll find many of North Platte’s iconic attractions along Highway 30, and there’s even a fully paved section of the original alignment that followed farm-to-market roads in a “stair-step” pattern. Relive the glory days of highway travel with the Highway 30 tour.
