Some of our Lincoln Favorites


Tour the State Capitol:
The capitol building is the perfect place to begin your tour of Lincoln. The interior of this must-see-jewel tells Nebraska’s history through carvings, mosaics, paintings, sculpture, inscriptions and inlaid wood. capitol.org

Go for a Pre or Post Race Run in a Lincoln Park:
With over 120 miles of trail and more parks per capita than any other U.S. city, it shouldn’t be hard to find a great place to sneak in a few extra miles before or after the Halfsy. Plan your own run at lincoln.ne.gov/city/parks

Explore the Haymarket:
Lincoln’s Haymarket district is a renovated historical site filled with charming shops, art galleries, brick streets, top notch restaurants, lively nightlife and an old railway station. Don’t hold back! lincolnhaymarket.org
