The High Point Welcome Center of Western Nebraska has only been open a few months, and workers say the number of tourists passing through has been phenomenal.
 
the welcome center had its 3,000th visitor within two months of opening its doors.

Tourism Director Jo Caskey says there really is no downtime for travel, so she expects to see people come through all year long.

Caskey says she sends travelers all across the Nebraska panhandle, and gets visitors in from a number of states.
 
"We have now touched people in 49 states and Washington D.C. the only state we haven't visited with is Alaska," Caskey said. 
 
Tourists from 20 foreign countries, including 5 provinces of Canada have also made a stop at the Welcome Center.
