With more parkland per capita than Austin, Texas; Portland, Ore.; and all but a handful of U.S. cities, an extensive (and growing) bike trail network, and a low cost of living, Lincoln is one of the fastest growing metro areas in the Midwest.
There are lots of pubs, nightclubs, and dives around the city of Lincoln. The major industry generally in Nebraska is agriculture, the landscape, rolling hills, and fertile plains is the one major reason for the wild west lifestyle for most people in the state. Hence, it is common to see people walking down the street in a cowboy hat as they get their daily business done.
The way of life in Nebraska is more peaceful and slower because people live rurally. The monthly rent is around $745 for a 900-square-foot apartment and the median home value is about $175,000.
