Summer has now approached so why not make as many memories as possible with friends and family. Take a vacation from your everyday life by doing things you wouldn’t normally do. A perfect place to go to is Sandhills Motel in Mullen, Nebraska. Your stay at Sandhills Motel will be an unforgettable trip to mark off your bucket list.

A great way to start out your vacation with your friends and family is to take in the view of Mullen, Nebraska. Make sure to have your camera always available to snap the breath taking views. You will want to show everyone back home what they been missing.

Sandhills Motel has many activities for the whole crew to enjoy during vacation. Start by taking a canoe trip down Dismal River or Middle Loup River. We recommend that you start with Middle Loup River for a fun and relaxing ride. As for Dismal River, this ride will be a little faster pace and more for the advance canoeists. For beginners at canoeing, we encourage you to try Dismal River but just make sure to practice first by taking a trip or two down Middle Loup River to know your limits.

Sandhills Motel offers unique attractions that can only be seen at very few places, one is bird watching. As the birds travel the North American Central Flyaway every year, this offers the chance to see the grassland dance. The grassland dance is a courtship ritual between Sharptail Grouse and Prairie Chickens. This mating tradition is a must see that can last between two to four hours depending on the activity. Groups of 16 people take a bus used as a blind to the areas of this courtship rituals to give you a close view to take pictures and learn all about these incredible birds. You won’t want to miss this “must see” attraction.

A Sandhills Motel trip is not complete without a stock tanking. Yes you heard right, floating down the river in a Stock Tank. Holding six to eight people, this is an activity the whole family can sit back, relax, and enjoy. You can also participate in the annual race down the river in a Stock Tank, all you need to do is get a team together and register at but hurry space is limited. Decorate, dress up as a team, do whatever it takes to win the race. This exciting race is a fundraiser to raise awareness to the Sandhills Journey Scenic Byway. An award banquet will be held at the end of the race.

After a long day in the sun, go back to a calm, relaxing, and quite place to take a nap or head right to bed for the night. You will be sure to get a good night sleep at Sandhills Motel. Picnic areas and swimming are also available for grilling out and hanging out with friends and family.
