Purpose of the Passport

Each year the Nebraska Passport features 80 destinations throughout the state that give travelers fresh ideas for where their paths can take them. The Passport stops include museums, parks, restaurants, wineries, shops and more – and all offer unique travel experiences. Passport participants can visit as many stops as they wish – one stop or all 80.

The 2017 Nebraska Passport program is focused on giving travelers truly memorable experiences. The 80 Passport stops offer a mix of unique adventures; from discovering Nebraska’s hidden gems to celebrating Nebraska 150, the 2017 Passport showcases what makes Nebraska special.

How the Passport Works

At each Passport stop participants visit they receive a stamp, either in a booklet or a digital stamp on the Nebraska Passport App. Stamps can be collected from May 1, 2017 to September 30, 2017. Participants then turn in their stamps and receive prizes. There is no fee to participate in the Nebraska Passport program. There is no purchase necessary to receive Passport stamps at the 80 Passport stops.
