Ashland / I-80 Exit 426

The 2,500 residents of Ashland enjoy an enviable location, midway between Omaha and Lincoln and a stone’s throw from Interstate 80. Many of Cass County’s attractions are at I-80 Exit 426 at Ashland. The nearby Strategic Air Command & Aerospace Museum, Eugene T. Mahoney State Park and the Lee G. Simmons Conservation Park & Wildlife Safari draw state-wide travelers seeking recreation, adventure and educational exploration.

A short drive from these major tourist attractions, four golf courses and a historic downtown with tree-lined brick streets make Ashland an appealing destination all by itself. It’s a great place to begin your adventure, with boutique shopping, artist galleries and a rich history that includes the site where Ox-Bow Trail pioneers crossed the limestone-bottomed Salt Creek beginning in the 1840s.
