Lincoln apartments are currently available many parts of town; the high summer is particularly excellent but regardless of when you are looking to move, Lincoln's apartments are available in every price range all year round.
Lincoln is easy to navigate via car. It is organized in a simple grid pattern; however, it does not include any major highways, so traffic is a problem during rush hour and University of Nebraska football games. Public transportation is run by StarTran, a city-owned mass transit operator that provides thorough bus service throughout Lincoln and Lancaster county and serves over 2 million passengers a year. Since 1994, StarTran has been slowly introducing environmentally friendly buses and, today, the entire fleet is powered by bio-diesel fuels. Aside from motor vehicles, Lincoln is home to the Great Plain Trails Network, a 128-mile network of trails that extends throughout the county. Over 82 miles of the paved or crushed limestone paths are considered commuter trails, providing access to the business districts within the city.
<p>The Nebraska State Capitol Building is located in downtown Lincoln. The four hundred foot high building features beautiful mosaic ceilings and floors, paintings and sculptures. The exterior is just as impressive with its marble, bronze and gold leaf siding and white tower topped by a bronze statue. The building is still used by government officials today, but free-guided tours are available.</p>
Arts in Lincoln
<p>Lincoln hosts a variety of music, arts and theater performances throughout the year.
