2021 Nebraska Passport program kicks off with 70 stops

If you are not familiar with the program, participants travel to each stop and get a stamp in their passport.

LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – The 2021 Nebraska Passport program is now open for travelers this year to explore the state’s hidden gems.

There are 70 stops and they range anything from museums, parks, restaurants, wineries, retail stores and a lot more.

“We had record participation last year as many utilized the Passport as a safe alternative for travels and I expect this year to be even more so,” Passport Program Coordinator, Madison Johnson said. “We already have about 8,000 more booklets requested than this time in 2020.”

If you are not familiar with the program, participants travel to each stop and get a stamp in their passport. You can also download the Nebraska Passport app and keep track of your stops there as well. At the end of the program, you can submit your booklet or digital stamps for prizes.

The program is free and you can pick up a 2021 Nebraska Passport at any of the 70 stops or fill out a booklet order form online.

Stamps this year can be collected May 1 through September 30.

Back in 2019, Johnson said they did an economic impact study and these were the results: $23.7 million in traveler spending and $1.9 million in state and local tax revenue.
