Travelers say you don't get treated everywhere the same as you do in Lincoln          Send a link to a friend

To the editor:

We stopped in Lincoln, Ill., recently on our way back from southern Illinois to West Burlington, Iowa. We just want to say that you should be very proud of your town.

We stayed overnight, and the next morning we drove around and took pictures of your "Lincoln" sites, your architecture, downtown, etc. We stopped at the farmers market, we ate at the Arcade restaurant and shopped at the Mustard Moon.

Everyone was so friendly -- from the manager of the motel, the people at the farmers market, the man in the restaurant who got up and gave us his booth to sit in while he went to the counter to sit, the waitresses, and the proprietors of the Mustard Moon. We have traveled quite a bit, and we have found out that you just don't get treated like that everywhere you go.

[to top of second column in this letter]

We just felt we had to write and tell you what a good impression your town made on us, and if we are that way again, we will certainly stop and visit.

Mervin and Barbara Smith
West Burlington, Iowa
