“Lincoln has the perfect mix of good people, interesting places and a diverse range of things to do. We’ve quietly kept Lincoln a hidden gem, an intriguing city in an unexpected place. But now that our city is undergoing its greatest period of growth it’s ever seen, a unified vision for the city has been developed to let people know what those who live here already know about Lincoln: you can be successful in Lincoln, you can be comfortable in Lincoln, you can have fun in Lincoln.”
– “Living in Lincoln,” Lincoln Chamber of Commerce
