NORTH PLATTE, Neb. (KNOP) - Nebraskans will have the opportunity to be tourists in their own state again. The 2019 Nebraska Passport inspires Nebraskans and tourist to travel throughout the state collecting stamps and prizes.

There will be 70 attractions across the state, in 10 themed categories. Last year, 749 participants made it to every stop on the list. The golden spike tower, among other western Nebraskan attractions, is making an appearance on the programs 10th year anniversary. Golden Spike Tower Executive Director Kirsten Parker said, "It's really encouraging people to get out of their houses, out of their homes, out of their communities and check out other communities. And the more and more you find out, the more and more you find about Nebraska. How unique it is, how different it is. I think it's important for all of us to go out and be a tourist in our own state."

Travelers will have from May 1 through September 30 to visit attractions and get their stamps.
