You don’t have to cross state lines to go on vacation…you can stay right here and be a tourist in your own town. We have a handful of beautiful, unique hotel properties right here in Lincoln, not to mention all the cool concepts in Omaha located just a hop, skip, and jump away. Book a room at one of these hotels and go explore nearby restaurants and shops. Everyone who participates will be entered into drawings for free over-night hotel stays and gift cards for dining and retail. In addition, there will be four main categories: Girls’ Night Out, Guys’ Getaway, Family Outing, and Couples’ Retreat (must book at least 3 rooms). The winning group of each category will get included in a fun special full-page feature in Strictly Business with a photo and write-up! Our hotels and businesses are taking the necessary precautions to ensure that we can still enjoy their services in a safe way, so let’s do that.
