You can drive in and take a look at the main street shops, very small town center - with small diners and mainstreet shops along the strip. I wouldn't take the time to do it again but if you do have an extra 10 to...More

Sidney was one of the wilder places in the old west. There's really nothing left to show its roughest history -- but worth a little detour off the I-80, perhaps after lunch at Margaritas at the easterly exit.

Small town . Nice shops and antiques. The old fort Sidney has a surprisingly good museum. Volunteer docents were friendly and informative. Check out the historical signs in Hickory Square, on 10th Street

Find out why Sidney Nebraska is called the Golden Link because something happened there in 1974. Read the posted historical signs. Stop in a few shops for home decor items. Have a beer and pizza nearby. Laid back is too strong a word.

Sidney appears to be a very successful town. The downtown stores are all filled and the place is very clean. We were through on a Sunday and driving throughout the area everything looked as if life is good. Cabela's Corp. offices sure help the area...More

enjoyed just wondering through the little gift shops and antique stores -- don't expect anything large and "showy". Nice little walk and shopping! Took me back to the "good old days" -- and we will forever remember seeing the smallest office ever -- my closet...More
