Live Lincoln

Discover Lincoln.

This is one of the most exciting times in Lincoln’s history. Construction of the Pinnacle Bank Arena and entertainment district opening September 2013 gives Lincoln the perks of a big city and comfort of a small town. New living, retail, restaurant and concert space will all be within walking distance for students as the University of Nebraska–Lincoln campus is nestled adjacent to Lincoln’s thriving downtown scene. Living on campus, you’ll never be more than a few blocks from the action.

Lincoln’s extensive trails system has been recognized as one of the best in the nation. More than 80 miles of trails are available for walking, hiking, biking and running.
