The Nebraska Tourism Commission is pleased to announce the start of the 2016 Nebraska Passport program! In its seventh year, the program is continuing to grow and capture the curiosity of travelers. With over 20,000+ participants in recent years, the Passport program is an unforgettable experience in connecting to the state and its people.

We’ve featured 80 stops and 23 new communities this year that will give you fresh ideas for where your path can take you—to every corner and region in the state, showcasing beautiful scenery, interesting destinations, and more. Nebraska Passport tours this year highlight the 100th Anniversary of our National Park System, the unique farm to table culinary movement that exists in our state, incredible small businesses, and lofty heights.

Whether you visit one stop or all 80, we encourage you to truly discover what makes Nebraska so nice—taking time to experience each destination fully. You’ll come away with more memories, pictures, knowledge, and artifacts than when you began.

From May 1st to September 30th, we encourage you to get out there and visit Nebraska. Check back on this website for destination updates (in the event of unexpected closings), travel advice, program announcements, and travel stories from your fellow participants.
