Welcome to the Quality-of-Life Capital of the Country!

In Lincoln, almost every home is a stone’s throw away from a public park or trail. We’re a safe community with top-notch schools and strong infrastructure that contribute to a quality of life that sets the standard for students, young professionals, families, and seniors.

Yet, we’re more than where you live; we’re where you work and thrive. As a gigabit city, our diverse economy, smart growth plans, and team spirit make Lincoln a hotspot for career growth and business success, including a bustling startup scene.

And get ready to cheer! The University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s volleyball team is ranked Number One in the nation and recently broke the world record for attendance at a women’s sporting event! Our community shines artistically, too—think Zoo Bar, Bourbon Theatre, Lied Center, Pinewood Bowl, and Pinnacle Bank Arena. Lincoln also makes a wonderful playground for families, with amenities like the Children’s Zoo, Children’s Museum, and Morrill Hall.

Come check out Lincoln in our new golden era, shimmering with culture, energy, and opportunity!
