NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (AP) — North Platte's annual Rail Fest is being recommended as one of the top events for U.S. bus travelers to consider attending.
The American Bus Association included the Nebraska celebration of railroad history in its list of the top 100 events for bus tours to visit. The 2013 event will be held next Sept. 19-21.
The trade group says an experienced tourism industry panel chose the events to recommend. The group published its top 100 list online at http://www.buses.org/News-Publications/Top-100 .
Lisa Burke with the convention and visitor's bureau in North Platte says the recognition is an indication of the quality of the Rail Fest event.
