The Nebraska Tourism Commission is getting ready for summer vacation season. Public Information Manager Angela White says they are getting ready their 2014 Nebraska Passport program. She says for 2014 the passport will feature 80 attractions on 10 themed tours.

The ten categories include visits to craft stores, countryside markets, state parks, winery and breweries, military sites, farms, bed and breakfasts and more. Travelers have from May 1st to September 1st to collect stamps for prizes.

White says the more stops and stamps you get the greater your chances of winning prizes.

White says 20 people hit every location on the passport last year. Some of the locations on the passport include Arbor Lodge, Nebraska State Capitol, Nebraskaland Days in North Platte, the Sandstone Grill in Burwell, Carhenge in Alliance to Higgins Hardware in Plattsmouth.
