Nebraska Tourism Commission excited to launch another year of Passport Program

Tomorrow kicks off National Travel and Tourism week, and the Nebraska tourism market is open for business.
 
The Nebraska Tourism Commission is launching its 5th annual Nebraska Passport Program.

When it was launched in 2010, the program consisted of twenty randomly selected spots. It has since evolved into ten themed tours that includes 80 stops across the state.

Tourism Commission Director Kathy McKillip says that positive feedback from travelers forced them to step up their game.  
"So going from that original 20-something stops to 80 was a very big jump for us," explains McKillip. "We needed to reach out to the businesses across the state to the attractions across the state to make sure we had enough product for the visitor to go see."

Week of May 5 – Can’t Get Enough Tour - NEBRASKAland Days, North Platte & Forks in the Road Tour – High Plains Homestead, Home of the Drifter Cookshack and Bunkhouse, Crawford
