If you’re looking to spend two weeks full of things to do then look no further than a holiday in Lincoln. The Nebraskan state capital has so much on offer from stunning scenery to amazing shops. Try to catch a game at the Memorial Stadium – it’ll be quite the experience! Sunken Gardens make the perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon – why not pack a picnic and make the most of your surroundings? Finally if you visit during the month of June be sure to check out the amazing jazz that’ll be on offer.
While you’ll struggle to purchase direct flights to Lincoln, you won’t have any trouble buying indirect flights - you have the option of flying out from either London Heathrow or Manchester. There are various airlines, who offer indirect flights including Delta, KLM and bmi – make sure you shop around before you book to ensure you get the best deals. If you decide to take a holiday in Lincoln, you’ll fly into Lincoln Airport – it’s located around seven kilometres from the city.
Once you arrive at the airport you’ll be able to pick up a taxi to take you to your final destination. Alternatively you can decide to hire a car in Lincoln – this way you’ll be able to have lots of freedom and won’t have to rely on public transport. Although you’ll be able to rent a car at the airport, make sure book it before you leave. You’ll find it can work out cheaper as you’ll be able to shop around to find the best deal. It’s also a good idea to book as far in advance as you can.
As the capital city of Nebraska, Lincoln is full to the brim with accommodation to suit every budget. Whether you’re after five star luxury or cheap and cheerful motels, you’ll find it here. If you’re on a tight budget, one of the best ways to secure a cheap hotel in Lincoln is to book well in advance – you’ll be amazed at what bargains can be had! August is a very popular time for tourists to visit Nebraska as the month is filled with state fairs and festivals. As a result, visiting during this time can be fairly expensive. If you want to save yourself a few pennies, try visiting during the spring - you’ll still experience pleasant weather.
You’ll be overwhelmed by the sheer amount of delicious restaurants on offer during your holiday in Lincoln – you won’t know where to go first! Luckily it doesn’t have to cost the earth to enjoy. Just make sure you stay away from restaurants specially aimed at tourists as these can be a bit harsh on your purse. Instead venture down the side streets to find traditional eateries that offer amazing home cooking. You’ll find they offer much more value for money!
