Lincoln-Style

The “silicon valley” of the Midwest and home of The Bathtub Dogs!

Thinking of Relocating to Lincoln?

 

Being the second largest city and the capital of Nebraska, this unassuming city offers a small-town atmosphere with big-city amenities.

 

For those who love winter, Lincoln will steal your heart. Winter bucket-listers can enjoy the peaceful retreat in a secluded log cabin nestled in the countryside. If nature is your passion,  wooded areas offer an abundance of lakes and hiking trails, not to mention the favorite hobby of bird watching.

 

Winter brings people to the outdoors to enjoy ice skating, tobogganing, snowshoeing and ice fishing. Building a snowman or two is always on the minds of the little ones.

 

For the sports enthusiasts, take advantage of hunting, fishing, boating, and hiking in the vast expanse of parks, hills, and recreational areas.

With a population of over 300,000 people, Lincoln offers not only an affordable housing market, but a family-oriented environment to raise your children in. The low cost of living and opportunities within the job market make this the ideal place to be!

 

The region has suddenly become the “Silicon Prairie” (the Midwest version of Silicon Valley in California.) Startup companies are popping up all over the area bringing more jobs and opportunities.

 

One such company is Hudl. This startup’s software enables coaches and athletes to produce videos online. Capabilities of editing and sharing are the highlights of this software and is especially popular among recruiting scouts. Hudl boasts over 4.2 million users!

 

As one resident put it, “Lincoln has an interesting mix of progressive politics, a big social media scene. The city is progressively up and coming with the young crowd. Packed full of culture, you can experience history, art, music and more.

The Infamous Bathtub Dogs

 

This ensemble of performers hails from the University of Nebraska. You can’t miss them for their zany jeans and neckties and quirky persona. Not all members of the Bathtub Dogs are musically inclined; however, the comradery and passion for performing make this group entertaining and fun.
