Find your perfect senior independent living community in Nebraska

Nebraska is a great state for seniors to enjoy their retirement. Its communities offer a friendly, relaxing environment.

Living in Nebraska

Nebraska is a state with a very low cost of living, even in comparison to other states in the Great Plains. The state hosts a friendly atmosphere, where people are fairly welcoming. The Cornhusker State also takes care of its seniors, partly through high quality healthcare, but also through such programs as the Nebraska Passport Program, which allows seniors to see Nebraska’s unique sights.


Nebraska hosts four distinct seasons in the year. Its summers are mild compared to other Plains states, while the winters do get cold.

Things to Do

As a rural state, Nebraska offers plenty for those who enjoy the great outdoors to do. It’s a prominent hunting state, particularly for turkey, but also for big game such as whitetail deer and elk. There are plenty of opportunities to hike and kayak in national parks such as the Niobrara National Scenic River and the Missouri National Recreational River.


Nebraska is host to important points in history, as shown in some of its monuments. The Homestead National Historic Park offers a unique point in history where the government gave federal land to farmers in return for living on the land for 5 years. Scotts Bluff National Monument is not just a beautiful sight, but also a key point on the trail for many who headed west in the 18th century.

In addition, Nebraska has its own unique attractions. Carhenge, near Alliance, is one part homage to more famous megaliths, one part testament to American creativity.
