Thrifty Car Rental – Lexington (LXN)

(308) 324-4594

Love the Old West in your Lexington Rental Car

The Small Town with Big Personality — Lexington, Nebraska

Thrifty car rental won’t see a single traffic jam during your stay in Lexington. In fact, the real sightseeing begins the moment you step out of your car and explore the perfect blend of history and nature’s beauty.

Platte River Historic Trails

Take a quick road trip in your Thrifty car rental just two hours outside of Lexington in Louisville, Nebraska, where you’ll find the historic trails once used by fur traders, Indians and our American ancestors as they immigrated West in covered wagons toward Oregon and California. The 28.5-mile trail follows the winding Platte River with high plains grassland and breathtaking landscapes as your view along the way.

Happy Jack Peak and Chalk Mine

Travel back in time six to 10 million years. All you have to do is set your Thrifty rental car GPS for Scotia, Nebraska. There you’ll find 6,000+ feet of honeycombed caverns with surprises all along the way, like a “chalk” mine.  Actually, the “chalk” is not really chalk, but rather a soft rock that contains calcium carbonate — an element commonly used in paint fillers.

Mac’s Creek Winery & Vineyards

When you’ve had your fill of nature, head to Mac’s Creek Winery & Vineyards and fill your glass with delicious homegrown wine. Located just north of Lexington, Nebraska, this award-winning vineyard has an extremely short growing season, so special grapes must be used that can adapt to Nebraska’s extreme temperatures. The result: a huge selection of wines that routinely rival the flavors found exclusively on America’s West Coast. Just be sure you designate a driver in your Thrifty car rental — especially for special events like, “Christmas on the Creek,” “Irish New Year’s Party” and “Live Music Friday.”

Heartland Museum of Military Vehicles

The phrase “go big or go home” probably was invented right here at the Heartland Military Museum. Look around and you’ll find retired helicopters, tanks, jeeps and an enormous stockpile of armored vehicles once used by the U.S. Military in World War II.  Highlights include the “Downed Airman Retriever,” one of a handful in existence in the entire world.

Chimney Rock National Historic Site and Visitor’s Center

You can drive along the Oregon Trail in your Thrifty car rental, but be sure stop at the most recognized landmark — Chimney Rock. Once described by pioneers as “Towering to the heavens,” this a true historical wonder of the West that should not be missed. The Visitor’s Center features original maps made by Captain John C. Fremont in 1843. Best of all, the Chimney Rock National Historic Site and Visitor’s Center isn’t just educational — it’s also affordable. Admission costs only $3 per person.
