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.
