One of our favorite activities of the Summer is participating in the The Nebraska Passport Program!
Imagine a scavenger hunt around the state to popular tourist attractions, unique restaurants, historical places, and locally owned businesses. Our favorite stops are to the hidden gems, some off the beaten path, that provide a unique way to explore in our own backyard.
Most of the stops change every year, and so families can participate year after year and explore new places. It is FREE to participate and to request a passport. No purchase is necessary at any of the stops – although the ice cream stops are sure tempting!

On the Nebraska Passport a previous year, one of the best surprises was Cedar Creek Pottery, outside of Beatrice. Artist Ervin Dixon showcased his beautiful pottery creations in an old country church.
The Dairy Store in Lincoln was the #1 visited stop on the Passport program in a previous year! Be sure to have some delicious ice cream if a local ice cream store is one of the stops this year!
eCreamery in Omaha was another popular stop. A local favorite, eCreamery always has delicious flavors to try.
The State Capitol is always a fun stop. Be sure to ride the elevator all the way to the top observation deck!
