There is just something about the energy in the air during the month of May. After a long (very long) season of hibernation, it’s rejuvenating to get outside and explore the city again.
With schools wrapping up their semesters and the unofficial kick-off to summer just weeks away, it’s a great opportunity to rediscover what makes Lincoln so wonderful during the summer—and get acquainted with several exciting newcomers to the business scene.
Grab your pool pass: Although the Lincoln Public Pools don’t open until May 25, you can beat the rush—and jump straight to lounging poolside—at that time by getting your season pass online now.

Test out a unique ice cream experience: With one summer of serving out rolled ice cream in the books, Freezing is ready to satisfy even more sweet teeth this year. Following the popularity of their Omaha sister store, the downtown location makes for a perfect mid-day treat. Not to mention the rolled, Thai-style ice cream is sure to be unlike anything even the most passionate ice cream aficionado has tried before.
Smoothies to feel good about: Long before their planned spring open date, Clean Juice has been generating positive buzz on the Lincoln health scene. As the only 100% USDA Certified Organic juice bar in the United States, the new store offers feel-good smoothie bowls, delicious juices and wholesome snacks.
Take a walk around a quieter campus: Now that the commencement ceremony at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln has happened, we can expect all of the city to quiet down for a few months—and that is especially true on the campus. But, for locals looking to stroll, this makes for a perfect time to enjoy all that the University grounds have to offer.
