Holt County – O’Neill

Holt County, NE Map
Holt County

You will want to come cruise through the rolling Sandhills and flatlands of Holt County.  We have three major highways that will carry you through an exciting shopping and tourism experience. 

Take a trip to Holt County to visit many boutiques, flower shops, gift shops, nurseries, coffee shops, brewery, tap room, jewelry store, and restaurants for culinary delights of every taste.  We offer three golf courses for all skill levels to enjoy too.  

You can cross the county on Scenic Historical Highway 20 that runs from the east coast to the west coast, taking the traveler past the turn to Page, as well as through Inman, O’Neill, Emmett, Atkinson and Stuart. 

There is U.S. Highway 275 that will bring you from the urban area of Omaha into Holt County through Ewing, home of the Savidge Brothers Historical Marker.  This highway also leads travelers to the World’s Largest Shamrock in the heart of downtown O’Neill, where the highway ends, or begins to those that live there. 

Traveling north to south, U.S. Highway 281 will bring you past the turn to Chambers, home of  the Veterans/Homestead Memorial Park.  Continue on north and you will again cross the World’s Largest Shamrock on your way to more adventures.  The Niobrara and Elkhorn rivers provide fishing and minimal recreation in the spring and summertime.  Recreational areas along these two rivers include Atkinson Mill Race Park and Carney Park in O’Neill. Or if you would like to see the county from a more natural perspective, take The Cowboy Trail that winds through the whole county with easy stops in Atkinson, O’Neill, Inman and Ewing for breaks and exploring.
