Named after Abraham Lincoln, Lincoln is the state capital of Nebraska and is great for history buffs, outdoor enthusiasts and everyone in between. Soak in the panoramic view of the city from the observation tower of the 400-foot high capitol building, whose white stone Art Deco can be seen from miles around. Take a tour of the building and its grounds, where you'll find a Lincoln monument created by the same artist who sculpted the famous Lincoln statue in Washington, D.C. While you're on a history roll, visit the Governor's Mansion, whose Georgian Colonial exterior belies the varied architectural styles inside, and be sure to see the collection of dolls representing the state's first ladies dressed in their inaugural gowns. Kids will love the Folsom Children's Zoo & Botanical Gardens, where they can circle the zoo in a miniature train and see over 300 animals living among spectacular gardens. For some outdoor fun, head to one of the city's beautiful parks, the largest is Wilderness Park, whose hiking, biking and equestrian trails will keep you on the move for hours.
