2023 Nebraska Passport stops select features of two North Platte businesses
NORTH PATTE, Neb. (Nebraska) – Nebraska Tourism announced stops included in the 2023 Nebraska Passport program, which includes two Lincoln County businesses, The Flower Market and Grain Bin Antique Town.
Sara Talbott said the Flower Market has been applying for the program for eight years. “Finally we have been selected for the Passport program. We are very excited to have him for downtown and for us. It’s really exciting for people, especially in the eastern part of the state, to see what we offer in west-central Nebraska,” Talbott said.
Downtown North Platte and the Historic Cafeteria District have been represented on the Nebraska Passport program in past years with Double Dips Ice Creamery, The Cedar Room and Quilt Rack. Still, Talbott is excited that people who have been to North Platte in recent years can see the progress being made across the community.
“North Platte is such an evolving community right now. It’s exciting to see all the expansions right now and what’s new coming to our community. And yes, people who were here last year will see something completely different and new this summer if they make a new passport. It’s great to bring new people and tourism to our community. Because we have a lot to offer in North Platte.” Talbot added.
According to a press release from the Nebraska Tourism Council, the passport inspires Nebraska citizens and tourists to travel across the state by collecting stamps to earn rewards, while also supporting Nebraska tourist destinations and local businesses.
“We are thrilled to kick off Nebraska Passport 2023 following another strong year in 2022,” said John Ricks, Nebraska executive director of tourism. “This year’s program will provide another chance for Nebraska travelers to experience our hidden gems while leaving a positive economic impact across the state.” Passport 2023 will once again include 70 attractions and 10 thematic categories. This year’s program represents 56 communities spanning the entire state. Travelers will have from May 1 to September 30 to visit the attractions and collect their stamps.
“2023 has many Passport stops that are brand new for all types of attendees,” said Madison Johnson, Passport program coordinator. “This year, you can go antique shopping, feed the zoo animals, rent bikes, and eat everything from barbecue to handmade chocolates! Most importantly, Passports will spend quality time with friends and family or simply fall in love with Nebraska.”
Passports will be available at participating stops beginning May 1 or can be pre-ordered at NebraskaPassport.com. Participants are encouraged to download the Nebraska Passport app to their smartphone for the digital stamp option, supplementing their physical passport booklet for convenience.
