Nebraska Tourism is excited to announce the stops included in the 2022 Nebraska Passport program. 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. In 2021, a record-breaking 1,322 program participants made it to every stop.
(Spring Creek Prairie is one of the stops on this year's tour!)
“The popularity of this program year after year continues to leave me in disbelief. In a couple weeks we will have new 2021 economic impact numbers tied to the program and the positive effect travelers have on the businesses involved. Can’t wait to share those,” said John Ricks, Nebraska Tourism executive director.
The 2022 Passport will once again feature 70 attractions in 10 themed categories. 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.
“We are so excited for the 2022 Passport season to begin,” said Passport program coordinator, Madison Johnson. “There are many diverse stops featured and they will provide wonderful experiences for longtime and new participants.”
The launch of the 2022 Passport comes with the unveiling of a brand new NebraskaPassport.com. The website better matches the character and charm of this well-loved program with a modern look and feel, improved phone compatibility, travel notices and highlights of pictures shared by Passport travelers.
Passports will be available at participating stops starting May 1 or can be pre-ordered at NebraskaPassport.com. Participants are encouraged to download the Nebraska Passport App on their smartphone and get digital stamps, supplementing the physical Passport booklet for convenience. Please note, the Passport app will be updated with the 2022 information on May 1. Those who used the mobile app last year will need to update the app to see the new program information.
