Featured Events in Lincoln:
Although Lincoln isn't the largest city in Nebraska, it's known as the cultural center of the state. Lincoln serves as the gateway to the western high plains from the fertile grasslands surrounding the Mississippi River, making it host to a mixture of traditions - from Native American heritage to college sports.
Lincoln is the location of the Memorial Stadium, which is the home turf of the Nebraska Cornhuskers. The football team has become so prominent throughout previous decades that Memorial Stadium holds an NCAA record of 311 consecutive sellouts, giving it the nickname "Sea of Red" since most fans dress in the university's iconic red color. Folks might be pretty laid back in the nation's heartland, but they take their football very seriously!
The University of Nebraska might be best known for football, but there are at least 21 men's and women's teams and 14 NCAA Division sports that take place here, such as the Saltdogs (minor league baseball) and the Lincoln Stars (USHL junior ice hockey).
Those who doubt the cultural relevance of Lincoln might be surprised to learn that live music and performing arts in general are quite prevalent in the area. Some of the live music venues include Pershing Auditorium for those who prefer a healthy variety of all genres, Duggan's Pub for a taste of local music and the Zoo Bar for some authentic blues. Community theater is also big in Lincoln, as there are several productions held at various venues.
Located near the Platte River, the city of Lincoln is surrounded by vast grasslands and smooth prairies. There are plenty of nearby state parks and historical markers for visitors to enjoy, especially along the banks of the Platte River. This area offers a unique balance between a fast-paced urban life and the farming culture.
Those who are hoping to fill their bellies with some unique cuisine might be thrilled to realize that the all-American food items like corn and mashed potatoes seem fresher here than anywhere else. We all know how popular Nebraska is when it comes to beef. Although Omaha might be a more familiar name, Lincoln is known for having some of the best steakhouses and restaurants in the country.
