Nebraska Tourism announced 70 stops for the 2021 Nebraska Passport program, including the Washington County Museum in Fort Calhoun.
The Passport inspires Nebraskans and tourists to travel throughout the state collecting stamps to earn prizes, while also supporting Nebraska’s tourism destinations and local businesses. Despite the pandemic, a record-breaking 1,185 program participants made it to every stop in 2020.
“The Nebraska Passport provides a huge economic impact for the state and for the 70 stops that are included in the program,” said John Ricks, Nebraska Tourism executive director. “This is the Passport's 12th year and each year it continues to grow as travelers discover what each corner of the state has to offer.”
The 2021 Passport will feature 70 attractions in 10 themed categories, including two categories to celebrate important state anniversaries, the Nebraska State Parks 100th anniversary and the 150th anniversary of Arbor Day. This year’s program represents 51 communities spanning the entire state. Travelers will have from May 1 through September 30 to visit the attractions and get their stamps.
Passports will be available at participating stops starting May 1 or can be pre-ordered at NebraskaPassport.com. Participants are also encouraged to download the Nebraska Passport App on their smartphone and get digital stamps, supplementing the physical Passport booklet for convenience.
