It's a pretty area and has living environmemts for all, from apartments to extremely large homes. There are great parks to explore, one with water activities and fishing (Lincoln Woods) and the other a great area to run and walk or sled in the winter (Chase Farms.) It could use more parks with playgrounds for children, but they're are some close by in neighboring towns. There is also shopping and entertainment close at the Lincoln mall and many colleges in the area.

Safe town, lots of options for restaurants and grocery. Close to route one. I generally feel comfortable in Lincoln whether I'm walking around, exercising, shopping, etc.
I've lived here my entire life, and I think it was the perfect place to grow up. It's a small, close-knit town with a lot of rich history and natural beauty. I love that over the years the town has chosen to preserve and protect the local historical sites and environmental wonders, while at the same time making them accessible to the public so that we can continue to learn about the roots of the area. I think that choice has proven that as a town we value the environment more than profits by building up over every empty space.
