NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Tourism season is approaching. This year, Nebraska could be seeing more visitors with the passport travel program. The Nebraska travel passport includes various stops in rural towns encouraging visitors to learn more about the unique areas throughout the state.

“When tourists come and visit the various stops, they are also out to explore and see what else is in the area,” said Muriel Clark, Assistant Director at the Visitor Bureau.

The Nebraska Passport program has been going on for over 10 years. The passports encourage people to visit key landmarks and businesses in the state. Many of the passport stops are family-friendly.

North Platte has three locations on the Nebraska travel passport: Buffalo Bill Historical Park, Cedar Room and Feather River Vineyards.

“Last year, Double Dips was on the passport program,” Clark said. “When people came and visit, the owner talked up everything else that is in North Platte. Visitors stayed and went to all the other things. Having passport destinations in your community means that people are going to visit everything else in the community.”

In 2020, 1,088 people visited all 70 locations. Roughly 222,000 passport stamps were recorded.
