is located within a mile of downtown Lincoln
and several university campuses, including the University of Nebraska-Lincoln directly south of the neighborhood. Belmont is popular among students and residents who work in the downtown area. The area has one of the lowest costs of living in the nation, and new residents can find affordable apartments here.
Catch a Cornhuskers game at Memorial Stadium, or kick back and watch a variety of athletic activities at the Bob Devaney Sports Center, where students practice or compete in indoor volleyball, track and field, diving, swimming, and basketball. For outdoor activities, try nearby Oak Lake Park, where you can enjoy a picnic, take your pet
to the dog park, paddle a canoe during the warmer months, or ice skate in winter.
Later, have dinner at one of the many restaurants just south of Belmont, including local favorites such as the Blue Orchid Thai Restaurant or the highly-rated LeadBelly, which features American fare with a twist, such as fried macaroni and cheese.
