Lincoln has always been considered one of the best-kept secrets of the Midwest. Currently in the midst of the largest period of growth in its history, Lincoln is building on its Top 10 standing for quality of life, safety and protective environmental measures to present a city that's affordable, accessible, and most of all - thriving.
Lincoln is only one hour from Omaha and just a day's drive from Chicago, Minneapolis, Denver, Kansas City, St. Louis and Des Moines.
Lincoln is considered a hidden gem, but we'll let you in on our secret. Lincoln is ranked at the very top as the happiest and healthiest city in America, so you are literally living in a less healthy and happy place at this very moment. Our low cost of living and our high quality of life allows you to get the most bang for your buck. With a sweet spot for balanced living, there is life after work with time and money to enjoy it (hello, 18-minute commute!)
Lincoln is sweeping top national rankings which are validating its success, yet its charming character and modesty still ring true. Ranked #2 by The Huffington Post "Top 10 Cities With The Highest Quality of Life" and Ranked #1 by Livability for "Up and Coming Tech Hotspots". Quickly becoming known as the Silicon Prairie, Lincoln and Omaha Nebraska are both havens for entrepreneurs seeking a home that's not only affordable but extremely supportive of new tech businesses, with organizations like the Nebraska Angels - a network of 60 active venture capitalists investing in tech businesses in the state. Omaha is also home to Silicon Prairie News, a new website that covers the startup scene in Nebraska and other Midwest states.
Passion and creativity run deep within the community of Lincoln. There's a certain charm that is found throughout our local art scene, the flourishing restaurant industry and the relaxed pace of life. We value our playtime, which is why our workdays leave you with plenty of time and money to do the things that make life enjoyable.
Lincoln is a sports town. While Nebraska football may seem to dominate the sports scene, it is not the only game in town. Husker athletics bring millions of dollars to the Lincoln community each year. They also bring many first-time visitors. Beyond Husker athletics are numerous other sporting events that draw fans. Baseball fans enjoy watching the Lincoln Saltdogs team play between May and August while hockey fans watch the Lincoln Stars from October through April.
