Map Lincoln Your Way

Many new Americans struggle to discover all the resources available to them. So Nebraska Mosaic created this map of Lincoln, Nebraska, which features most of the important resources to anyone new to the city or anyone who struggles to find the things most important to them and their families.

How it Works

Select the buttons below to learn more about various services, or find them in the city by selecting various categories from the drop-down menus above the map.

Enter your address here to place it on the map:


Getting Around

Navigating any American city for the first time can be scary and intimidating, even for Americans. Lincoln, Neb., a city of 258,379, is no different. (Learn more about Lincoln's transportation system)


The best way to get around Lincoln is by car. That will require access to a car, registering an owned car, a driver’s license, and auto insurance.

For its size, Lincoln has limited options for those who don’t have access to a car: taxi/car service, carpooling or city bus. Those traveling to locations beyond Lincoln will likely take a bus, train or airplane.

Health Care, Emergency and Govt. Services

Health, Safety and Help

One of the most important services local governments provide is emergency services. In extreme cases of need, dial 9-1-1 with any phone.


If people aren’t sure if a situation merits a 9-1-1 call, it is better to call anyway and explain the situation to the operator. Any phone should reach a 9-1-1 operator. Even an old cell phone that has no service is required by law to have the ability to dial 9-1-1.

Schools, Libraries, Museums and more

The educational system goes beyond the more than 60 elementary and high schools for the city’s children and adolescents.


There are also educational opportunities for adults that can help them learn English, gain skills for new or better jobs, or for obtaining a high school diploma which is commonly called a GED (General Education Development).

Lincoln is also home to more than a dozen libraries and museums which all provide educational opportunity for young and old. Learn more about them.

Worship and Charitable Organizations


Religion and Aid

Lincoln is about 90 percent Christian with more than 200 places of worship. Services are also available for people of Buddhist, Jewish or Muslim faith, but the vast majority of houses of worship are Christian.

Regardless of faith and beliefs, most religious organizations, or organizations affiliated with them, offer services and assistance for those in need. Charitable organizations generally offer their services to anyone who needs or wants it, despite differences in religion, politics or race.

Learn more about these organizations.


Parks and Rec

There’s a little of something for everyone in Lincoln, Neb., but the trouble for most people is knowing where to find it.

A common night out for many Americans is to have dinner at a restaurant and see a movie, but that can be expensive, especially when the whole family is included.

There are cheaper ways to get the whole family out of the house for an afternoon or evening of fun and relaxation. The options found here don’t cover everything that’s available in the city, but it’s a good start to discovering what’s available.
