Whether you need a quick getaway or you’re just passing through, Lincoln offers a variety of things to see, eat and do. Make the most of your short stay with this 24-hour Lincoln itinerary.
2 p.m.: Arrive in Lincoln and check in at The Graduate Hotel.
Drop your bags and start exploring all the hotel has to offer, including a pool, outdoor terrace, tiki bar, restaurant and game room/lounge – all decked out in 1970s decor (right down to the corncob curtains).
4 p.m.: Grab a drink at JJ’s Tiki Bar.
Channel island vibes with a tiki drink at JJ’s, conveniently located on the first floor of The Graduate Hotel.
6 p.m.: Walk to dinner at The Oven.
I hope you love Indian food, because this restaurant came highly recommended by several Lincoln experts. And for good reason. Take a seat on the outdoor patio and eat your way through a delicious selection of naan, chicken tikka, lamb vindaloo and saag paneer.
8 p.m.: Have some beers at Zip Line Brewing.
Porters, pale ales, stouts – take your pick at Zip Line Brewing. (The Hibiscus Saison is a personal favorite.)
11 a.m.: Wake up and get brunch at Hub Cafe.
Pro tip: order the Fried Farm Egg Sandwich!
2 p.m.: End the trip on a sweet note at Goldenrod Pastries.
It’s not a trip to Nebraska without a slice of Goldenrod’s sweet cornbread cake. Top it off with an iced matcha latte and you’re ready to hit the road!
