All the things to do, see, eat and drink you'd expect from a capital/college town . . . and then some. 

Do the classics—a tour of the Nebraska State Capitol, a lively night out in the Historic Haymarket District. See a Broadway show or headlining musicians at the Lied Center for Performing Arts or Pinnacle Bank Arena. Do the family thing at Lincoln Children's Museum or the Lincoln Children's Zoo. Then make time for some surprises: discover the botanic garden and museums on the University of Nebraska campus. Taste around town to determine your favorite local breweries, wineries and restaurants. Find bison and a prairie ecosystem at Pioneers Park Nature Center. That's just the start.
