Lincoln, Nebraska, United States

The Near South Neighborhood is the premier historic Lincoln neighborhood. An evening stroll down B Street takes you past many other Turn-of-the-Century mansions, especially around 22nd to 17th Streets. They are breathtaking older homes, most in tip-top condition.

We list nearby attractions and nearby services below:

Sunken Gardens. Two blocks away. It’s TripAdvisor’s #1 thing to do in Lincoln! Everyone visiting Lincoln should visit this flower-filled miniature paradise! Extremely pleasant, relaxing, and beautiful.

o Cozy, small, craft-beer tasting room. It’s at the back end of Moran’s Liquor works, 3400 A Street, towards the alley. It is a rare and unique place. One bar, maybe ten stools. Something like that. Here’s how they describe it: “At the back of Moran's is a quaint little space we like to call The Growler Shop & Tasting Room.
