Located 27 miles northeast of Sacramento, the city of Lincoln is a family-oriented community with a Gold Rush history. But perhaps its best known event is the Feats of Clay Festival, a nationally known show for ceramic artists at the 129-year-old Gladding McBean terra cotta plant.

Gladding McBean's products adorn many of the historic buildings in California.

A fast-growing city with about 27,000 residents, Lincoln still retains a small town feeling with broad, tree-lined streets and a downtown plaza.

The city's heritage can be seen in the renovated Beerman's Beerworks building in the historic section of Lincoln and dates back to 1864.

New homes are being built rapidly and complement the older housing in the area.

The city has its own airport with a 6,000-foot runway. Interstate 80 is accessible via California 65.

Outdoor recreation is easily available locally in the nearby Sierra Nevada foothills, including fishing, boating, swimming, hiking, camping and much more.

Commute time to downtown Sacramento

Typical commute time for Lincoln residents is about 29 minutes.
