Willa Cather Historic Sites selected as a 2015 Nebraska Passport Destination

Wednesday, May 13, 2015

The Nebraska Tourism Commission presents the 80 featured stops in the 2015 Nebraska Passport Program. The Passport program encourages travelers to explore Nebraska, collect stamps from participating attractions and earn great prizes.

The 2015 Passport will feature 80 attractions on 10 themed tours.

Travelers have from May 1 through September 30 to visit attractions and redeem their stamps for prizes. For each completed tour, participants win a Nebraska Passport T-shirt. Travelers also can receive 20 $1 Nebraska Lottery Scratch coupons (for 20 stamps) and a Travel Duffle Bag (for 40 stamps) and a Local First Gift Basket (for all 80 stamps). A grand-prize drawing for an Omaha Steaks Culinary Calendar Package 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. Participants can also download the Nebraska Passport App for their smart phone and get stamped digitally rather than carrying around the paper passport. Please note, the passport app will be updated with the 2015 information at 12:01 a.m. on May 1. Those who used the application last year will need to download the update to see the new information.

The Willa Cather Historic Sites was selected as part of the Nebraska Legends tour along with the following sites:

Red Cloud's newest lodging establishment, Red Cloud B&B at the Kaley House, is also one of 80 sites selected for this year's Nebraska Passport program.
