Very nice downtown with lots of older buildings. We enjoyed eating at several of the locally owned restaurants.

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.

Not much to Sidney . Just a few stores and restaurants .One Walmart that didn't have any I was looking for ( and that never hàppens) and a gro ery store. Nothing seemed historic about it,so don't drive a ways to see it .

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 and it appears that it brings other jobs to the area. Very nice community feel.

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 is probably bigger :-)

This little town has lots of stores downtown unlike a lot of smaller towns I have been in. Extra Large Hardware Store had lots of things and the Furniture Store had some really nice things

The buildings are old but it does not seem to be an old historic down town as you would expect from the signs. I was not that impressed with the historic aspect. I think the advertising signs to this town hype it up a little more than is worthy. There are some old buildings but nothing to get overly excited... More

Nice small town - great break from I-80 drive. Get away from the fast food and Cabelas and visit a nice, old historic town.
