(Neb)-Four Northern Panhandle Sites In 2018 Nebraska Passport Program

By: John Axtell Posted at: 03/11/2018 09:18 AM
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) - The Nebraska Tourism Commission has announced the stops on the this summer's Nebraska Passport Program, 70 attractions in 57 communities grouped into 11 different categories. Travelers will have from May 1 through September 30 to visit the attractions and get their stamps.

        The Panhandle is home to 10 of the stops, including 4 in the Northern Panhandle: Chadron State Park, the Knight Museum and Sandhills Center in Alliance, High Plains Homestead north of Crawford, and A Pocketful of Rye in Chadron.

      State Tourism Director John Rice says the Passport program was started to give travelers an incentive to get out and experience some of Nebraska's unique destinations. Last year, a record 469 people visited each stop.

     Participants get a stamp - either actual or digit - to put in their passport - again either actual or digital -  for every attraction they visit, then receive prizes for reaching milestones.

     10 stamps bring a Passport car decal and $15 in Nebraska lottery coupons, 25 a Nebraska Tourism calendar, 45 a Nebraska poster booklet, and all 70 special  "Passport Champion" apparel.

      All children who participate will be awarded a special Passport surprise and there will be drawings for more than 100 prizes.
