2019 Nebraska Passport Program

LINCOLN - Last year, over 50,000 people from 418 Nebraska communities and 46 states participated in the Nebraska Tourism Commission Passport program.

This year is the 10th annual and it has already started.

Public Information Officer for the Nebraska Tourism Commission Erin Lenz says travelers can discover Nebraska’s scenery, try local food, step back in time, and experience family fun all while collecting stamps and earning prizes.

Lenz says there are 70 attractions you can visit.

"It's kind of addicting to collect stops. They're very different too, because you can be in a state park one moment to a great store in a community the next. There's places like car hinge, Kinkaider Brewing Company, Bluebird and Brownville, and a bunch more."

Lenz says you can participate in the program by downloading the free Nebraska Passport app or order the 2019 Nebraska Passport booklet.

It began Wednesday and will run through September 30th.
