The sprawling grasslands and cornfields of the Nebraska countryside seem to go on forever. From one horizon to the other, they create a sea of green, yellow, and beige, all moving like open-ocean swells across the landscape. That is, until you come across the campus of the University of Nebraska and the State Capitol Building, and you realize you’ve wandered into the city of Lincoln. Browse Travelocity’s incredible selection of hotels in downtown Lincoln, NE, and become a temporary Cornhusker.
After you’ve arrived in town for a well-deserved Midwestern adventure, stretch your legs in one of the most scenic places in the city: The Sunken Gardens. The gardens sit on 1.5 acres of land, and include thousands of brilliantly colored flowers, dozens of sparkling water features, and several pristine fish ponds. Next, leave the serene sights and sounds of the Sunken Gardens for the galleries of the Sheldon Museum of Art. Whatever your artistic side desires, this place has it. Landscape and still life. American Impressionism and early Modernism. Geometric abstraction and Abstract Expressionism. After you’ve completed your list of everything you set out to do during your stay in the “Star City,” our hotels in downtown Lincoln will serve as the perfect home away from home.
