The second annual “Be A Tourist in Your Own Hometown” encourages local residents to take advantage of Lincoln-area attractions and museums. Venues participating in the program will hold special events throughout the summer. Wendy Birdsall, president of the Lincoln Convention and Visitor's Bureau, says this is a great way to encourage locals to experience some of Lincoln's attractions.
