Good Living Tour: McCook
Hear Nebraska interviewed young residents in Greater Nebraska to hear what makes their community a distinctly attractive place to live, work and play. This and other Experience Nebraska videos were shot and produced in June 2016, part of the Good Living Tour storytelling project, made possible by Nebraska Department of Economic Development, Humanities Nebraska, Nebraska Department of Economic Development, Peter Kiewit Foundation, Center for Rural Affairs, Pinnacle Bank, Nebraska Loves Public Schools, Union Pacific Railroad, Viaero Mobile, Huber Chevrolet and Sandhills Energy.
Other places brag about their quality of life, we prove it.
