Ski the 'Trace' October in the Oak Bowl          Summertime, downtown Peru

Although Peru has fewer than 1000 people, we include it because it is exceptional in a couple of ways: Itís the home of Peru State College, the oldest state college in Nebraska (and one of the first three colleges established west of the Missouri). The college is listed in The Hundred Best Colleges for the Average Student because the small class size and dedicated faculty enable the student who was ďaverageĒ in High School to shine in College.
Nestled in among the oak-covered hills and creeks along the bluffs above the Missouri River, Peruís tree-lined streets, sleepy downtown, and quaint college atmosphere make it a perfect hometown for retirement or for families that want to enjoy the country. Itís also home to a trailhead on the Steamboat Trace Hiking-Biking trail. And as the photo shows, it isnít just for hiking and biking.
