Enter downtown Lincoln and the first thing you’ll see is the shimmering golden dome of the Nebraska State Capitol. Dominating the city skyline, city zoning laws have ensured that no other building in the city rivals the capitol’s magnificence. Topped with a 20-foot statue of a farming sowing grain, the capitol building is the second tallest state capitol in the country, coming second only to Louisiana’s state capitol in Baton Rouge. Named one of the “Best Cities for Families” by Child magazine, Lincoln is full of family-friendly attractions, including the Lincoln Children’s Zoo, Pioneers Park Nature Center, and the Lincoln’s Children Museum. With over 40 exhibits, the Lincoln’s Children Museum is highly interactive and even includes a three-story apple tree and prairie dog tunnels.
Kids aren’t the only ones who will find entertainment in Lincoln. The attractions are endless, whether you enjoy visiting historic sites or enjoy a night on the town. Downtown Lincoln includes upscale restaurants and thriving nightlife, as well as large retail shopping centers. Historic Haymarket is the place to go for quaint shops and antiques, but you also can visit art galleries and the Nebraska’s first microbrewery in this historic district. See a Broadway show at the Lied Center, or visit Mary Riepma Ross Media Arts Center for independent and foreign films.
While the University of Nebraska, BryanLGH Medical Center, and the state government are major employers in Lincoln, the capital city also consistently ranks as one of the best small metro areas for starting a business. So rent your next apartment in Lincoln — you never know what opportunities the city holds in store for you.
