Ready to start exploring? EscapeWizard.com suggests heading over to one of the many parks the city has to offer and relax away any remaining travel jitters. Lincoln’s park system is extremely extensive, containing over a hundred individual parks. An EscapeWizard.com favorite is Antelope Park which is home to the vivacious Lincoln Children’s Zoo and the beautiful Sunken Gardens. Listed in the “300 Best Gardens to Visit in the United States and Canada”, the Sunken Gardens contains three major gardens: the Healing Garden (or White Garden), Perennial Garden, and Annual Garden. The gardens house tons of events throughout the year so make sure to check for any events occurring during the time of your stay. If you love to hit the trails, the MoPac Trail cuts through Lincoln. It is perfect for walking and cycling but is also facilitated to function as an equestrian trail.  An interesting and distinct aspect of this trail is what it is built on—an abandoned railway corridor of the Missouri Pacific Railroad. It allows for a unique and one-of-a-kind experience that only Lincoln can offer.

Want to immerse yourself in sentimental aspects of Lincoln? EscapeWizard.com recommends touring the beautiful campus of the University of Nebraska to experience the Cornhusker way of life. Places you must visit on campus are the Memorial Stadium, the University of Nebraska State Museum which houses many interesting Nebraskan fossils, and the Great Plains Art Museum. EscapeWizard.com encourages you to visit the Nebraska State Capitol building. It is the second largest capitol building in the United States. Built between 1922 and 1932, it is a skyscraper with a golden dome topped with a 20-foot sculpture of a farmer sowing grain, illustrating the state’s agricultural history and the trade on which it was founded on. An EscapeWizard.com Top-5-Must for Lincoln is a trip to the Historic Haymarket. It was the first market square, originating in the late 1890’s. It has been restored into a district comprised of specialty boutiques, interesting antique shops, delicious restaurants, and beautiful art galleries. Located within the vicinity are the Iron Horse Park and the Iron Horse Legacy which is a mural depicting the first locomotive to travel across the vast Great Plains.
