Top 9 Airbnb Vacation Rentals In Lincoln, Nebraska - Updated 2021

airbnb in lincoln

The Midwestern region of the United States is home to twelve states, each with its own image and personality but together serves much of the country’s agricultural needs. That being said, you can expect vast fields, rich farms, and rolling hills when visiting this region. One of the states you shouldn’t miss out on when traveling to the Midwest is Nebraska. There are plenty of interesting places to see here and one of them is the city of Lincoln, the state capital. Famously named after the country’s sixteenth president, Lincoln is a hub of history, culture, and green spaces. They owe the majority of its population and sights to the University of Nebraska, which is the state’s biggest university. The city holds a number of cultural events yearly, particularly in sports, which makes the atmosphere fun and communal. For places to visit, you should check out Nebraska State Capitol and Sunken Gardens. If you’re planning a trip here soon, you should read our list below for the top Airbnbs in Lincoln, Nebraska.
