I’m really excited to interview Allea Grummert of Duett.co about Lincoln, Nebraska. Allea’s tips for the best things to do in Lincoln are awesome because she grew up nearby and moved to Lincoln 16 years ago for college. She stayed for the community and how it feels like a “big small town.”
We share a lot of resources and local suggestions in today’s podcast, but you should also check out Visit Lincoln, the local visitor’s bureau. They are a wealth of information and can help you plan an itinerary based on your time, budget, and interests.

Getting around Lincoln
The local airport is Lincoln Airport (LNK), which is about a ten-minute drive into the city. Allea says not all airlines fly into Lincoln, so your other option is to fly into Omaha’s Eppley Airfield (OMA) and then make the hour’s drive to Lincoln. Use our Expedia tool below to find flight, hotel, and rental car options.
StarTran is the local public transportation, which is great for getting around the city center. It’s $1.25 per ride or $2.50 for a day pass, and the Downtown Trolley is only $0.25. Uber and Lyft are excellent ways to get around.
When you only need a car for a couple of hours, you can rent by the hour with Zipcar. Join now to get $25 loaded into your account.
