Why you'd want to live in Lincoln
Lincoln is know as a fantastic City to raise a young family. It was always a small town on the outskirts of Sacramento. Lincoln remained a sleepy town until the mid-1990s, when the suburbs of Sacramento started expanding out past nearby Roseville. The city is now experiencing a new period of growth. As of the 2010 census, the population was 42,819, for a growth rate of 282.1% since 2000, making Lincoln the fastest growing city in the United States over the last decade. In June 2004, Lincoln gained additional notoriety when it opened the first casino in the greater Sacramento Metropolitan Area, Thunder Valley Casino Resort. In 2006, Lincoln was named an All-America City by the National Civic League. It was the only California city to be named an All-America City that year and only 1 of 10 cities to receive the prestigious award. The dynamic growth of the City continues into 2017.
