2013 Tourism Sites Selected for Nebraska Passport Program

Posted: Updated:

Stops for the 2013 Nebraska Passport program have been selected. The 80 featured stops aim to encourage travelers to explore Nebraska and collect stamps from each attraction to earn prizes.

The 2013 Passport will feature 80 attractions on 10 themed tours: Hit the Hot Spots, Meet the Locals, Picture the Scene, Play Outside, Savor the Flavor, Seeing is Believing, Sleep Tight, Tap Into It, Turn the Page and Wrangle the West.

The program has travelers visit the attractions from May through September to earn stamps to redeem for prizes.

For each completed tour, participants win a Nebraska Passport T-shirt. Travelers may also receive 20 $1 Nebraska Lottery Scratch coupons in celebration of the Nebraska Lottery's 20th anniversary (for 20 stamps) and a digital camera (for 40 stamps).

A grand-prize drawing for an iPad mini will be held in October. This year, an additional drawing for 300 $1 Nebraska Lottery Scratch tickets will be held for all participants, 19 and older, who turn in passports with at least one stamp.

Passports will be available at participating stops in May or can be pre-ordered by emailing info@NebraskaPassport.com.
