“We are always so excited for the start of the Passport season,” Madison Johnson, Nebraska Passport program coordinator said. “This year’s program offers so many unique experiences, and we can’t wait for all of our Nebraska travelers to see for themselves as they visit these communities across the state.”

Participants can pick up a passport at any of the 70 participating stops or order it on the website. Nebraska Tourism also encourages participants to download the Nebraska Passport App to receive digital stamps, which supplements the physical passport.

In 2022, visitors from 36 states and 373 Nebraska Communities, as well as 980 champions visited all 70 stops.
