Lincoln can be difficult to get around. There is not much to do here. You get to know everybody pretty quickly. It is more of a college town than anything. Everybody can be kind. Everybody can be very understanding. Some will help you with certain things. Some will shrug you off and let you do things on your own.

My city is home to the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, which is one of the Big Ten Universities in the United States. One may find there is not much to do in Lincoln, but he/she could spend a lot of leisure time touring downtown, participating in an escape room, swimming at a lake, or eating Runza.

Summer can be unbearably hot and humid. Winter can be so frigid you may feel as though extremities will break off. However, there are three to four days in spring and in fall when the weather is just right. If you can withstand the horrors and trials of the rest of the year, Lincoln, Nebraska, is not a terrible place.

Lincoln becomes the largest city in the state on football game day. People from all over the state join to cheer on the home football team with drinks, food and camaraderie. You won’t be able to go anywhere in the city on game day without seeing a sea of red.

If you are moving to Lincoln, these are a few important things prior to your move. Firstly, the city management can, at times, cause quite a disturbance in your daily commute. There tends to be several large construction projects operating at one time throughout the city, so you would do well to stay informed of possible detours along your route.
