Lincoln is the capital city of Nebraska, named after President Abraham Lincoln. Lincoln is famous for its Nebraska State Capitol and the Sunken Gardens. Located in the southeastern part of Nebraska, Lincoln sits on a rolling prairie. The city's western edge lies in the Salt Creek Valley, which flows to the lower Platte River. The terrain to the west is upward sloping, thus, moist winds come and go. Humidity is generally moderate except during some summer periods with moist tropical air.

Booked a good ticket to Lincoln with Delta
Hi I'm Jenna from Minneapolis. I booked a direct ticket flight to Lincoln from Minneapolis. I grew up in Lincoln, so, the trip was for seeing my family and taking a break from work. It was a short trip, about over an hour. I must say it was comfortable. The food I ordered in the flight was hot and delicious. I enjoyed the flight attendants' company, they were very friendly and accommodating. The flight was smooth and quick. Delta made sure their passengers and customers will have comfortable and enjoyable flights. I would recommend this to everyone. I can assure everyone that booking your air ticket with Delta is worth it.

Best trip I've had in years
Hello my name is Anna. I'm from New York. I booked a ticket to Lincoln. It was a 5-hour flight, with a stopover in Minneapolis. I must say going to Lincoln was the best trip I've had in my entire life. I was able to see the Governor's Mansion, the Nebraska State Capitol, and the Memorial Stadium. I marveled at the Sunken Garden's beauty. Holmes Park & Lake has also stunning views. I enjoyed my summer there. I was lucky to have booked a ticket to Lincoln in June, when the summer weather wasn't too harsh. Next time I book a ticket to Lincoln, I'll make sure it would be on winter. So I will be able to enjoy its winter activities too.
