Visit Minden

Small Town. Big Fun.

Need to get away?
You don't have to look far.

Come to Minden!

Only ten minutes south of Interstate 80, Minden is conveniently located inside the Tri-City Area (Kearney – Grand Island – Hastings). This provides Minden with an ideal location if you want to get off the beaten path, but still have close access to big-city amenities. It’s only a short 20-50 minute drive to three Central Nebraska cities with between 25,000 and 45,000 people, each of which hosts many of the nationwide chains that we all know and love. But even better than that, Minden can offer you a one-of-a-kind, home-grown experience in our locally-owned shops and restaurants.

(Minden is the county seat of Kearney County with a population of 2,964, but don’t let the numbers fool you. Just because we’re small-town doesn’t mean we aren’t world-class).

Below you can browse lodging, places of worship, dining, and shopping options—as well as discover the best attractions and recreational opportunities we have to offer! And check out the map of our town while you’re at it.
