Mullen, Nebraska: Unofficially the best small town in the United States (Every reason you need to visit)

It’s hard to believe that March is already here! The days are growing longer, the weather is getting warmer, and our urge to get back on the road again is stronger than ever before after sitting idle for the last 12 months. With so many places to visit and so many things to do as we return to normal, there has never been a greater moment than this to get out and see the world around us. And while we completely understand that a town with a population of slightly more than 350 residents in central Nebraska may not be at the very top of your must-see destination list, we’re here to wholeheartedly convince you to come see us here in Mullen, Nebraska.

Think of this as an ice breaker – you can get to know a little bit about us and we’ll get to know a bit about you once you realize that Mullen is as iconic as the Sandhills that surround us.
