Bang-smack in the centre of the USA, you'll find the friendly city of Lincoln. Nebraska's capital may not be a buzzing metropolis like other American cities, but its friendly atmosphere draws visitors back time and again. The city is more liberal than the rest of the state, thanks in part to its university (UNL) and free-thinking student population. Despite the sleepy small-town feel, Lincoln is home to a host of cultural attractions including the Sheldon Museum of Art and the Lincoln Children's Zoo.
Finding the best place to stay in Nebraska is important, which is why we've put together this quick guide to Lincoln's neighbourhoods (and the best hotels in every price-range).

Downtown Lincoln is where most of the action is. Attractions include the Lincoln Children's Museum and the Bourbon Theatre, and the UNL campus (home to the Sheldon Museum of Art) is nearby.

There's not a whole lot to attract a tourist to come specifically to Lincoln. However, having said that if you are in town there are several fun things to do. It is a very nice place to live with pretty low living costs, and very friendly people
LIncoln is a surprisingly trendy and wonderful town to visit. It has a very active downtown, pedestrian area with many local breweries and small cafes. The university in town contributes a lot to the feeling of the place, attracting people from hundreds of miles away for every home football game. There is a nice farmer's and flea market on Saturdays that is very enjoyable. The Speedway Museum alone is worth a visit to Lincoln. Cool, eclectic, unpretentious and fabulous. Great town.
Lincoln is a prettier city than I expected it to be and larger too. In a way, it reminded me of home in Georgia. The capitol building is among my favorites in the country. Good eats here too.
